Food Waste

Our Community Fridge

In the UK alone, it’s estimated that we throw away 9.5 million tonnes of food every year. This is the equivalent of approximately 1.2 million elephants!

At TCR Hub we are passionate about saving food from waste and it being shared amongst the community.

We run a fantastic food waste project, known as “The Community Fridge” which mainly comes from donated supermarket surplus food. The food is available to EVERYONE (not just those in need)

This is usually fresh food, such as fruit, vegetables, chilled goods and bakery items. It varies what is on offer each day, and most items are short dated.

This is available EVERY DAY, just inside our front doors. We recommend visiting from approx 11am onwards to allow time for our volunteers to collect and sort the food

You do not need to be attending an event at TCR Hub to come and help yourself to our Community Fridge, you can pop in just to rescue some food if you like! Please bring your own bag.

If you are able to, there is a suggested donation of £3 per bag. All donations go towards running our Food Pantry for those in need.

For more information on any of the above, please contact TCR Hub on 01833 690150 or email
