About



Hope Fridge is a mutual aid group based out of the Fox Valley in Wisconsin. Our goal is to ensure everyone in our community always has enough food to eat so they can survive AND thrive. 

Hope Fridge and its members provide, help maintain, and keep stocked working outdoor fridges filled with donated fresh food throughout our community. 

Hope Fridge partners with restaurants, markets, and like-minded community partners to help combat food insecurity and food waste in the Fox Valley by ensuring those in need are connected with available and/or excess food. 

Food security intersects with many other social systems including systemic racism, rights to bodily autonomy, and trans and queer rights. 

Hope Fridge actively works to promote, participate in, provide supplies for, and host/co-host events that provide resources and/or a sense of belonging and community to the LGBTQIA+ community, as we understand that they are at significantly higher risk for homelessness, food insecurity, depression, and suicide due to systemic homophobia and transphobia. 

Hope Fridge actively works to promote, participate in, provide supplies for, and host/co-host events that mobilize our community members into direct action against injustice everywhere, including protecting our right to an abortion at any time and for any reason. If we don’t have bodily autonomy, we have nothing.

Hope Fridge actively works to promote, participate in, provide supplies for, and host/co-host events that mobilize our community members into direct action for justice for marginalized people everywhere, including Isaiah Tucker, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Jayland Walker, and others killed by police. 

Thank you for being a part of Hope Fridge! 

Cold Food, Warm Hearts.
