North Walsham Community Fridge reopens

North Norfolk District Council is delighted to announce the re-launch of the popular Community Fridge in North Walsham.

Now located in the Community Shop on Market Street, the Fridge is part of a wider effort to tackle food waste. The aim is to ‘recycle’ good quality foodstuffs that local food outlets have as surplus, and the food is free to those who want it.

After a short temporary break away, it’s here and back again with a permanent home and can be accessed by everyone to reduce food waste.

Staff and volunteers did great work during the height of the COVID situation providing much needed food to those who needed it whilst preventing unsold food from going to waste.

To date, the fridge has prevented over 2 Tonnes of food going to waste which fits well with NNDC’s climate change objectives.”
