Oakland’s Town Fridge is creating food access, one refrigerator at a time

Melanie Wong | Aug 2, 202009:15 PM    

"Over the past month, a group calling itself 'Town Fridge' has set up four refrigerators in publicly accessible spaces around Oakland. Anyone can open up a fridge anytime and pull out free food and drinks, from eggs to water bottles to fresh produce. The project, fueled by volunteers and donations, has one simple goal: try and provide sustenance for anyone who needs it. The group plans to set up five more fridges around town soon. And then more. . . "
