Merton Community Fridge

Merton Community Fridge

about

The rise in unemployment and personal issues resulting from the pandemic has massively increased the number of residents unable to secure an adequate and nutritious diet for themselves and their families. However, Merton’s Community Fridge continues to offer fresh, healthy food.

Each week, volunteers hand out free food parcels to eligible residents at Morden Baptist Church, Grasmere Avenue.

Merton’s Community Fridge was conceived by Sustainable Merton, Merton’s leading environmental charity, before the COVID-19 crisis, to help find a long-term solution to tackle food poverty and reduce food waste. During the lockdown, it became part of the emergency response to provide food for hundreds of people, including residents unable to shop as they were required to shield.
