A community fridge has been installed in Yaxley to ensure that unwanted food goes to people who might need it.
Yaxley Parish Council has set up the community fridge in the pavilion building on Middletons Recreation Ground. In response to the pandemic, it has had to adapt to the way it operates. It is no longer possible to select items yourself, instead, all items are bagged and shared equally. There is always a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables along with pastries and bread.
It is open on a Wednesday and Friday from 10.30 am to 11.30 am and is being run by volunteers.
It is possible to donate to the fridge but we can not accept certain foods such as raw meat, raw fish, opened milk, cooked rice and will only register food traders can donate produce that is prepared or cooked.
