Reducing food waste and empowering communities

Our Community Fridge

The RJ4All Community Fridge provides quality food to communities in South East London while simultaneously preventing food waste. Our Community Fridge is a social space that does not only meet the food needs of community members but also provide a space to connect with others. Thus, mitigating the adverse socio-economic effects of COVID19 on communities and helping them cope better with mental and physical health challenges.

We partner with Hubbub, a foundation that coordinates the world’s largest Community Fridge network with over 250 Community Fridges running across the UK.

Where and when?

The RJ4All Community Fridge is open to all on Monday to Friday from 9.30 am to 5.30 pm. The best time to come is Tuesday 11 am to 2 pm to get products from our fresh deliveries, that is when the fridges are full!.

You can contact us to check the availability.
