The Fridge

reducing food waste

Dereham Community Fridge is hosted by Green Pastures Bookshop, 20 Norwich Street Dereham, managed by Love Dereham and in partnership with Breckland District Council.


The fridge was set up to give businesses and individuals the opportunity to donate good quality food items that are past their ‘best by’ date, but within their ‘use by’ date, which would otherwise be thrown away. ANYONE is then able to visit the fridge and take something out that they can use.

The primary aims are to reduce food waste and to give people access to good quality free food.


There are times when the fridge is full and there are times when it is empty. Just come along and see if there is something you can use!!

Any food that passes its ‘use by’ date is then used for animal feed and compost.

For more details on how you can get involved please see the contact details and opening hours below.
