The Hawkhurst Community Fridge operates under the umbrella of the Hawkhurst Community Trust 2018. It was opened in June 2020, under its founder Ellen Neville, at that time one of our Trustees, and since then has made an amazing contribution to the wellbeing of the village.
The motto of the Fridge can be summed up as “A simple solution to wasting less through the sharing of good quality food to benefit the people of Hawkhurst”.
All the food is freely available to anyone in the community. This is a sharing project with the objectives of reducing food waste and CO₂ emissions while including residents and stores to take part in sharing and caring for one another.
