The Littlehampton Community Fridge is the first (hopefully of many!) to be set up as part of the West Sussex Community Fridge Network.
Community Fridges exist to reduce food waste and foster a spirit of sharing and mutual support within a community. They are often open more regularly and offer a source of fresh good quality food surplus for everyone. In many cases, the most frequent items moving through the fridge are fruit and veg. They operate on a trust basis and are not means-tested.
Our opening hours at St James are found below:
- Who can come? Anyone (yes anyone!)
- What can I get? 5 items plus bread (per adult per day)
- What does it cost? Nothing, it is all rescued and needs a home to stop it being wasted

NEW LITTLEHAMPTON COMMUNITY FRIDGE ON TOUR!

They are excited to announce they have now purchased suitable vehicle! It has already proved valuable in rescuing tonnes of surplus food over the festive period.
‘Littlehampton Fridge on Tour’ has been trialled since August and are pleased to announce 3 stops on their tour every Wednesday Afternoon starting on 6th January 2021 so that more people in the area can benefit from the surplus food on offer.

They are open for anyone, no matter affordability, to come and take 5 items to take home to use and save it from being wasted and can put a few pennies in the donation box towards their operating costs if you wish.
Volunteers work hard to make sure that they rescue and redistribute as much surplus food as they can during these unusual times and are passionate about saving good food from being wasted. Please do come and see what they have to offer.
