No.19 Community Fridge

Photo of the community fridgeAt No.19 Highgate Road a Community Fridge is being set up by the collective of groups based there including Refugee Community Kitchen, Kentish Town Vegbox, Cooperation Town, Think & Do and Camden Council. The Fridge will help prevent waste by collecting surplus food and offering it to the community for free. 40% of food waste losses happen at the retail or consumer level. When food waste goes to landfill it releases Methane a greenhouse gas which has approximately an 80 times more warming effect than CO2.

If you would like to be involved in the team that will be maintaining the fridge and sourcing the food please get in touch via thinkanddocamden@gmail.com.
We are not accepting food from homes due to Covid, but instead collecting surplus food from local retailers and suppliers. If you are a local business and have surplus food please get in touch.

19 Highgate Road, Kentish Town, NW5 1JY
Opening times 9am – 8pm Monday to Friday
Saturday (approximate) 10am-4pm


Free Market

Refugee Community Kitchen

What if we could cut out food waste from the borough? In collaboration with Refugee Community Kitchen and Cooperation Town we have been co-hosting a ‘Free market’ at 19 HIghgate Road to cut down on food waste and develop a circular sharing economy in other items too.
