The community fridge project
HEALS worked with Malmesbury Town Council,Hubbub and the local Co-op stores to set up the Community Fridge in Malmesbury Town Hall in July 2022
How does it work?
Our two Co-op stores and Malmesbury Aldi provide their fresh produce that is reaching its "use by date on a daily basis.
HEALS volunteers collect and bring it to the Community Fridge in Malmesbury Town Hall As well a the fridge there is a tall freezer and shelves for dried goods.
We received generous funding from Coop funding partners Hubbub, Wiltshire Council, Malmesbury Area Community Trust and Malmesbury Carnival to make this project happen
The project team have visited a working Community Fridge in Swindon and Tetbury and are speaking to other projects that are already up and running.
After a year long project planning we were delighted to officially open the fridge on 25 July 2022. The fridge is open to all to use. It is well used providing free fresh and frozen food for those who need, improve nutrition and helping to cut food waste in Malmesbury.
