Mott Haven Community Fridges
How to donate: Volunteer drivers for Saturday distribution are especially needed. Learn more here and fill out volunteer form. Monetary donations via Venmo, CashApp, Go Fund Me, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What’s inside: Both fridges are located a block apart at 297 Brook Avenue and 141 Street and St. Ann Avenue. Fresh fruit, vegetables, dairy, eggs, bread, and packaged meat, and non-perishables such as canned foods, pasta, and packaged snacks. Prepared food only accepted if individually packaged and labeled with ingredients and a date of preparation.
A note from its operators: “Our two Mott Haven Fridges were founded by two south Bronx sixth grade teachers as a way to help feed their students’ families. The effort has since expanded into a fleet of volunteer drivers and distribution projects servicing the entire network. Above all, we need: monetary donations, connections to food sources, and more volunteer drivers. We encourage folks to reach out through our volunteering form or email if they are interested in helping to sustain our humble movement of neighbors helping neighbors.”
