Upcoming Expenses through Calendar Year End

Published on October 27, 2021 by Sara McCafferty

Hi Denver Community, In an ongoing effort to increase financial transparency, we have put together a list of expenses we are anticipating before 2022. Below we have our anticipated expenses, a short description of each, and their costs and...


Denver Community Fridge is a mutual aid project aimed at addressing food insecurity in the Denver Metro area, which is located on stolen land of the Cheyenne, Arapahoe, and Ute. We are a prison-industrial complex (PIC) abolitionist group that works in alignment with the movement for Black liberation and restoration of Indigenous sovereignty.

We recognize that food insecurity is intimately linked to other forms of injustice and aim to work collaboratively with community members to meet people’s basic needs. We deeply believe that community work must be done collectively in order to be successful, so we encourage all members of our community to engage with the fridges in ways that feel restorative and supportive to them.

Additionally, we understand that our community members, in the most vulnerable circumstances, know their needs best. Therefore, we do not police how much/how often someone takes from the fridges. There is more than enough for us all.

With the help of community members and local businesses, our fridges and pantries are full of produce, sealed prepared meals, hygiene and wellness products, and more, for any and everyone. For more locations, FAQs, volunteer information, and more, please see our linktree or visit out instagram page

Donations we collect are used to pay fridge artists, transport food and materials, purchase cleaning products and more vital cost-incurring activities that allow our fridges to be implemented and maintained.

Take what you need and leave what you can.

With love and solidarity, 
The Denver Community Fridge Team
