YAXLEY COMMUNITY FRIDGE

A community fridge has been installed in Yaxley to ensure that unwanted food goes to people who might need it.

Yaxley Parish Council have set up the community fridge in the corridor of the Austin Hall at the Amenity Centre on Main Street, Yaxley. It stocked up every Wednesday with a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables along with pastries and breads.

It will then be open weekdays 9.00am to 4.00pm and on Saturdays 9.00am to 1.00pm.

There are a few rules for the fridge. It does not accept certain foods such as raw meat, raw fish, opened milk, cooked rice and will only registered food traders can donate produce that is prepared or cooked.

A community fridge is a simple way of enabling communities to share good food that would otherwise go to waste.

The fridge is an open access fridge stocked with surplus food from local businesses and individuals that is freely available to all members of the community on an honesty basis.

For more information on how it works, how to donate or volunteer to help please contact the Clerk by calling 241958 or email clerk@yaxleypc.org.uk
