How to donate: Drop off food anytime. Monetary donations via North Brooklyn Mutual Aid on Open Collective and Venmo. Fill out form to volunteer or DM via Instagram.
What’s inside: Variety of items including prepared meals from local restaurant partners, produce, and fresh bread. A pantry where folks can find shelf stable items like canned goods, snacks, and dry goods is also available.
A note from its operators: “We want people to know the fridge is there and that you can take as much as you need. If you're able to donate, every item counts. The fridge has very high turnover and items are usually gone in less than a day. If you're donating prepared food, made safely at home or in a restaurant, please label and date items. Finally, everyone deserves treats and pleasure. If you're bringing items to the fridge, think about including foods you would enjoy as well, like snacks. We are always looking for new volunteers and partners, so please reach out if you'd like to get involved. If you have a large amount of food and no car, we have a transport team that can organize a pick up. The fridge is a true team effort.”
