A ‘trailblazing’ project tackling food waste will see a community fridge installed in Lowestoft to encourage local sharing.
The volunteer-led Lowestoft Community Fridge initiative forms part of the Food Savvy campaign aimed at tackling rising levels of food waste in the region.
Supported by the Suffolk Waste Partnership, Waveney District Council, the Morrisons Foundation, and environmental charity Hubbub, the fridge will be based at St Andrew’s Church in Roman Road, Lowestoft.
The fridge was donated to the project by Lowestoft-based Hughes Electrical and will offer local businesses, organizations, and residents the opportunity to donate surplus food.
Donations can then be collected by any local individual in order to increase a spirit of sharing locally, organizers say.
