Baton Rouge Community Fridge

Inspired by efforts in other cities over the past year to combat issues directly impacting their neighborhoods, the Baton Rouge Community Fridge is finally open at Yes We Cannibal located at 1600 Government St, Baton Rouge, LA.

Open to the public 24/7, the community fridge is free for anyone to take what they need and give what they can. Our objective is to de-stigmatize and support folks with food insecurity, minimize food waste, and offer a direct way for anyone to get involved in improving conditions for everyone in Baton Rouge. 

So far funds have been used to purchase materials for the weather-proof shelter. Going forward, funds will be used to purchase any necessities that aren't donated for the second community fridge (refrigerator, building materials for a weather-proof structure, cabinet for pantry items, thermometers, extension cord, hand sanitizer dispenser and cleaning supplies) and potentially cover electricity costs for the fridge. Extra funds will go towards the continual stocking of items for the fridge and pantry.

For more information or to find out ways you can assist other than financially, please email [email redacted][dot]com. Follow us on Instagram (@brcommunityfridge) and help us spread the word!
