NEW for Henfield  

A Community Fridge

Food waste is a big issue. A third of all food produced globally is wasted.

Most of this food waste is avoidable and could have been eaten had it been better managed.

Community Fridges are one tried and tested way of stopping good food ending up in the bin and promoting a spirit of sharing and mutual support within a community.

They work on an honesty basis and are housed in public, accessible places, making surplus food freely available to members of the public.

The fridges are available for anyone to use.

In Henfield we are now ready launch the HENFIELD Community Fridge

We have a location – Henfield Leisure Centre

Henfield Parish Council have bought the actual Fridge
