Refrigerator In Brooklyn Stocked With Free Food For Anyone Who Needs It

During the pandemic, community fridges have proved essential for food-insecure New Yorkers. There is one fridge in Brooklyn that has gone above and beyond. Located at Myrtle Avenue and Adelphi Street, a refrigerator is stocked with free food for anyone who needs it. The refrigerator was put in place last month by Clinton Hill Fort Greene Mutual Aid, a nonprofit group formed during the coronavirus crisis to help provide groceries to homebound residents. Volunteers are in charge of picking up the food donated by local businesses. Then they sort and package the fresh food and place “use by” dates on them. There are also shelves for non-perishable foods, a can opener for those who can’t wait to eat and bags to take items home. They say the most popular items are milk and eggs and they’re doing outreach to get more donors.
