Communities in New York City are introducing community fridges. These fridges allow people to give food to other people in need. These communities first began in New York during Covid-19 when people were struggling to find food during the lockdown. The community fridges give anonymity to people who are embarrassed to go to food banks and other places that offer food to people in need. Volunteers maintain the fridge and ensure it stays clean at all times. These fridges are helping a lot of citizens of New York who are in need and have even been spreading to other parts of the world.
