People in Harlem who need something to eat can find free, fresh, nutritious food in a new community fridge that opened this week.
The fridge is on West 134th Street between Lenox Avenue and Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. Boulevard.
Stocked with produce, sealed store-bought items and even recipes, the fridge is open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
People are urged to take whatever they need — or give what they can reports Patch.
Community fridges began popping up around the city last year as a way for New Yorkers to help their neighbors stay well-fed despite widespread job loss and illness during the coronavirus pandemic.
To support the fridge, donate to Harlem Grown or stop by in person to drop off food items.
