Very soon, all residents of Southside Glasgow will be able to share food and help to reduce the amount of food waste in Scotland.
SEIN members, Pollokshields Development Agency (through their ‘Goes Green’ project), are excited to be launching their very own Community Fridge, as part of the 50 Community Fridges in the UK supported by the Community Fridge Network.
Food waste is a big issue in Scotland. Every household throws away on average £460 worth of food every year. Most of that waste (around 60%) is avoidable and could have been eaten had it been better managed.
The Scottish Government has recently introduced a target to reduce food waste in Scotland by 33% by 2025 and Community Fridges are praised by Zero Waste Scotland for its approach to tackling the issue.
Open to all
PDA Goes Green’s Community Fridge is open to all. All our visitors are welcome to get involved, whether by giving or receiving food. You can find our fantastic Community Fridge at 4 Maxwell Road. The Fridge will be open from the 21st of February.
Monday-Wednesday and Friday, (10.30am – 2.30pm)
Thursday (12- 4pm)
We welcome donations of unopened packaged foods within their use by date and raw fruit or vegetables!
