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.
