Transition Bro Gwaun’s Surplus Food Project is a not-for-profit enterprise that cuts food waste and saves carbon by stopping food going to landfill. Volunteers and staff collect perfectly good food that local shops and businesses would otherwise throw away. We opened Fishguard & Goodwick Community Fridge in November 2017 to continue sharing the wealth of food available from local shops, businesses and people, and stop it being wasted.
The Community Fridge furthers the Transition Network’s messages of sustainability, carbon reduction and economic resilience within our community. Transition Cafe attracted a wide range of people, both as volunteers and users. Continuing this trend we have seen that the Community Fridge draws in people who had not visited Transition Cafe and many people really value the food available. Since it opened in 2017 we have saved over 50 tons of food from landfill and helped many people to have access to fresh fruit and vegetables plus bread, pastries and more.
People from all walks of life use The Fridge, many people benefit.
