Community Fridge Project

“You can’t build peace on empty stomachs,” Dr. Norman Borlaug, quoting Lord John Boyd Orr 

Food is a basic necessity, but it also permeates every layer of our lives. What we eat contributes to how we shape identity, create family and community. Sharing food, and the stories we share around food, break down “otherness” and beget “togetherness.” Food for Thought bridges the logistical gaps between getting our neighbors fed, and getting our neighbors together to build community. Our current focus is developing a network of community fridges, free of the barriers and stigmas often associated with accessing traditional food resources. Governed by the community members hosting, maintaining and utilizing these sites, it is our hope that they serve as a nexus for community-building and story-sharing that naturally grows from neighbors engaging in mutual aid.
