There Is Enough Food, Just Not Enough Food Access

Free Food Fridge Albany is part of a national movement to ensure that those facing food insecurity have access to fresh food. In Albany, it started with a single vibrantly painted fridge and has expanded to a network of six fridges across the metro region. The fridges are stocked daily with donations of fresh food – from milk to veggies to prepared foods – and anyone is welcome to take as much as they need, anonymously and with no questions asked. Local grocery stores, farms, restaurants, and individual volunteers keep the fridges stocked and over 500 people donate funds each month via Patreon.
