Local Initiative Adds Sixth Community Fridge

Iniciativa local agrega sexto refrigerador comunitario

MEMPHIS, TN (LPL) — The 901 Community Fridges initiative added a refrigerator with free food to those in need in the Midtown area.

Due to the existence of “food deserts” or places where there is no place to get food of high nutritional value nearby, several local organizations took on the task of distributing food in those areas to combat malnutrition and hunger.

This new refrigerator joins five others that distribute free, healthy food around the city.

In addition to cold food, you can find a pantry next to the refrigerator with dry food and cans, as well as basic necessities.

The exact location is 472 Marianna Street, Memphis, TN, 38111.

People who want to donate food, whether canned or prepared, are also asked to contact those in charge of the 901 Community Fridges initiative at the email: 901communityfridges@gmail.com

The other community refrigerators are located at the following locations:

Hope Fellowship Church, 1170 Mullins Station Rd

First Congregational Church, 1000 South Cooper Street

The Memphis Church, 7400 Cordova Club Drive East

Holy Trinity Community Church, 685 S Highland Street

Binghampton Community Church, 362 Tillman Street
