"Community (Free)dge" Initiative
As part of our commitment to our community, and via a partnership with our friends at New Purpose Thrift Store, we have created the "Community (Free)dge" initiative. This initiative specifically focuses on providing free food to individuals and families in need of food items. The fridge is meant to help individuals and families cover their immediate food needs and is not meant to fill personal fridges on a monthly basis. We partner with numerous other non-profit organizations and local businesses in order to maximize the effort and reach of this program.
Our fundraising activities and distribution efforts for this initiative take place throughout the year.
(The fridge is located inside the New Purpose Thrift Store located at 223 Main St. Auburndale, FL.)
If our community fridge is too far away from you, or if we can't meet your individual/family needs, you can also receive free food at other locations. For a complete list of food distribution locations and schedules, visit United Way of Central Florida, or you can also contact Meals on Wheels Polk to schedule a "door-to-door" meal delivery service.
