A group of us volunteers at Reading Sustainability Centre have decided to challenge each other to share and improve our sustainable food habits.
Reading’s first community fridge is now up and running. Community Fridges provide a place for local residents and businesses to donate surplus food, which is then available for anyone in the community to take.
