Chemistry Community Fridge Project

Developed and run in collaboration with students and Warwick Food and Drink, the Community Fridge will be located outside L3, L4, L5 on the Science Concourse and will be restocked each weekday at 5pm with surplus food and ingredients from the University's catering outlets.

The fridge is open for all students and staff to collect food each day on a first-come, first-serve basis.

We hope the Community Fridge helps to:

• Reduce food waste within the University community.

• Enhance food security for students and staff who may be facing food insecurity.

• Promote a culture of sustainability and community support at Warwick.

You can email us at if you have any questions or comments about the Community Fridge.
