COM­MU­NITY FRIDGE

Central Leader - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

Or­gan­is­ers of a com­mu­nity fridge in the mid­dle of Auck­land’s CBD have gone above and be­yond to en­sure free food on offer meets health safety stan­dards. On Novem­ber 30, a com­mu­nity fridge was in­stalled in the new pop-up Grif­fith Gar­dens on the busy cor­ner of May­oral Drive and Welles­ley St West. Busi­nesses and the pub­lic are be­ing en­cour­aged to leave ed­i­ble food which would oth­er­wise go to waste - and any­one is wel­come to grab a bite to eat. The fridge is checked twice a day by vol­un­teers. They check the tem­per­a­ture and dates on the food - mak­ing sure it is safe to eat. The fridge will be open un­til De­cem­ber 23.
