We recently took on some of the operational responsibilities of Cardiff's First Community Fridge, based at Cathays Community Centre. The fridge provides free access to food for anyone 7 days a week. It aims to tackle food insecurity and food waste simultaneously. Using surplus food to redistribute to those who need access to food. Anyone & everyone can use the fridge.
The fridge was set up by Fizzi Action Events and funded by Cowbridge Food & Drink Festival. You can read more about the fridge here:
