Hubbub Foundation Accepting Applications for Community Fridges

Funding to support community initiatives which minimise food waste across the UK.

A partnership between Hubbub and the Co-operative, the Community Fridge programme has reopened for autumn 2022 applications.

The fund is open to UK not-for-profit groups with their own bank account, providing they:

  • Are setting up a new Community Fridge which has not yet opened.
  • Establish the Community Fridge within six months and have intentions to sustain the project for at least three years.

Priorities include:

  • Supporting applications in regions with a sparsity of Community Fridges (a map can be found on the Hubbub Foundation website).
  • Supporting groups in areas with high levels of multiple deprivation.
  • Ensuring a fair and inclusive application process with equal opportunities for everyone, regardless of background, culture or race.

Each successful applicant will receive £3,000 to cover the initial costs of setting up the fridge, and a further £1,000 one year after opening.

The deadline to apply is 30 October 2022.
