A note from its operators: “The Forest Avenue COMEunity fridge is more than just a way to provide our community with access to healthy food. It also serves as a way for us to build true restoration, empowerment, and unity in Staten Island amongst its residents and in the Mariners Harbor community. Our vision for the fridge is to bring visibility to Staten Island’s most marginalized communities and the issues our communities face. Many people have a whitewashed and divisive image of Staten Island; the Forest Avenue ComeUnity fridge serves as a way to dispel preexisting beliefs and reflect a more diverse, creative, and communal Staten Island.”
