According to a 2010 USDA study, there is approximately 133 billion pounds of food that is wasted and sent to land fills annually. With 1 in 7 children in the United States living in food insecure homes, wondering where their next meal will come from, the amount of food waste produced in this country is an act of violence. Within our organizing efforts, we partner with farms, grocers, and local restaurants to rescue food that would other wise be thrown away. In organizing these food rescue missions, we ensure that neighbors will be able to access free, fresh, food daily. Our free food initiative is rooted in mutual aid, meaning this is a fully community run operation with the goal of developing community resilience and ultimately liberation from the power structures that are designed to oppress and regulate us. This is mutual aid, not charity. The goal of a community fridge is empowerment and building long term relationships with community members.
We have four community fridge locations across the city:
- Fantastic Pizza, 910 Main St, Worcester, MA
- The Printer Building, 44 Portland St, Worcester, MA
- Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers, 16 Brooks St, Worcester, MA
- Union Hill School, 42 South St, Worcester, MA
Let’s get the ball rolling!
