Funky Town Fridge is not a charity. This new concept is a collective initiative to provide free food in outdoor spaces accessible to anyone in need 24/7, no questions asked. The fridges are stocked through food rescue — the collection of items that cannot or will not be sold, such as produce with cosmetic blemishes or food near its best-by date. Current locations include Polytechnic Heights (2308 Vaughn) and South Side (3411 Bryan Av), with West Side (5705 Wellesley Av) coming soon. Do you need something? Take what you need. Are you in a position to donate? Please do it. For more information, visit FunkyTownFridge.org. #FeedtheFunk
