Where to find Community Fridges in Belgium?

 

 

Here we are
 Parties are over, everyone has eaten well (and too much?) and you end up, as every year, with an astronomical quantity of food that you will never be able to finish đŸ€·â€â™‚ïž

 

To save yourself from waste and stay in the Christmas spirit 🎁, there is a very simple solution: “community”, “open” or even Free Go fridgesÂ Â đŸ€Â Did you alreay hear about them?

 

These are fridges installed all over Belgium where you can drop off food and where people in need can come and serve themselves đŸ’Ș

 

Family Time Saver has listed the community fridges that will prevent you from throwing away food while helping those who need it.


Be careful, there are a few rules to respect ⚠

  • The food must be labeled with the date of preparation, the presence of any allergens and, if possible, an indication of the content (meat, fish, poultry) đŸ„©
  • If you place a frozen product, mention on the product that it has been already frozen and that it cannot be refrozen.
  • Put the fruits and vegetables at the bottom of the fridge 🍏    

WHAT CAN BE PUT IN THE FRIDGE ✅

  • Dry food
  • Bricks of milk, juice or other 🧃
  • Fruits and vegetables of all kinds
  • Drinks
  • Meat
  • Cheese and other dairy products
  • Bread🍞
  • Fish

WHAT YOU CANNOT PUT IN THE FRIDGE ❌

  • Open bottles
  • Spoiled food
  • Food with pas date 🕱
  • Alcoholic beveragesÂ đŸ„‚

 


For more info, go to the AFSCA  website which regularly checks the fridges.
