The Albrighton Community Fridge feeds 350 people a day. It’s open from 1pm to 4pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, is staffed by volunteers and runs on donations from local residents and businesses.

Many people travel a long way to use the fridge and the number of visitors continues to increase week on week as jobs are lost and businesses close.
