The Ryedale Free Fridge is a volunter run, not-for-profit enterprise initiative, part of The National Community Fridge Network and is the first of its kind in North Yorkshire.
Through the development of the 'Community Fridge', the volunteers have been able to prevent almost 12 tonnes of good quality food from going to landfill over the past 12 months. As a result, the Ryedale Free Fridge has fed more than 8,000 people in 12 months and provides a social hub for the local community.
The initiative helps local businesses reduce their own food waste footprint by donating surplus, edible food to the Free Fridge whilst supporting Malton in its ambitions to become the UK’s first circular economy market town.
The success of the Ryedale Free Fridge has inspired other communities and has led to the opening of others in North Yorkshire such as Filey, Hunmanby and Norton.
