Thanks to The Bold Italic for letting us know about the Oakland Town Fridges.

Spreading love all over The Town, Town Fridge offers a network of free food fridges around Oakland.

You can take what you need and leave what you can. The Town Fridges are currently located at:

  • Pro Arts Gallery in Downtown (inside the gallery)
  • Broadway & 15th Street in Downtown
  • 30th Linden in West Oakland
  • 16th Street in West Oakland
  • 14th Street in West Oakland
  • 59th Street in North Oakland
  • and more to come

Please follow their guidelines, and when you visit a fridge. Treat these fridges like your own: produce goes in the produce bin to keep it fresh, group cooked meals together, and give it a quick wipe when you stop by. These fridges are by and for the community which means this is everyone’s resource and everyone’s responsibility.

If you’d like to be a part of Town Fridge in any way, fill out their form.
