The Albrighton Community Fridge was set up by the Albrighton Community Centre in 2018 to reduce food waste among local food retailers and support the surrounding community by providing small food items at no charge. It is a part of the Hubbub Community Fridge Network.
In March 2020, the centre became a Covid-Food Hub and the Community Fridge ramped up with more volunteers, longer opening hours, and a much wider range of goods. Today the fridge provides food and other essentials to an average of 350 households per week — that’s a total of over 900 adults and more than 450 children. The fridge offers fresh fruit and vegetables, hot meals, frozen meat, bread, tinned goods and a limited selection of toiletries and sanitary products.
The fridge is open from 1pm to 4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. It is staffed by volunteers and relies on donations of food and money from individuals, local groups and businesses. While demand is increasing week on week, donations are dwindling as businesses and local residents hit hard times themselves.
