Today, I’m going to put on my work hat and talk about community fridges. If you don’t know what they are, people and establishments all over the world have been plugging in refrigerators and setting up food pantries outdoors so people who have food can drop it off and people who need food can help themselves.
Plant Eat Share
Growing food in public spaces has become more popular over the past few years, especially since the pandemic uncovered how serious food insecurity has become. With public planting, edible plants are grown on sidewalks, in front yards, in public parks, and outside of buildings for anyone to enjoy.
Gleaning has been around for centuries – it’s simply the act of harvesting leftover food from fields. In the past, the less fortunate were given the opportunity to come into fields and take food they needed; today, volunteers tend to gather the food and donate to a group that then distributes it to those in need.
