The Byker Community Fridge is a place for Byker residents to access FREE, GOOD QUALITY FOOD…that would otherwise be thrown away.
Situated in The Cross Cafe (at Raby Cross, NE6 2AL) and open 1-4pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, anyone is welcome to take food from the fridge. We normally have lots of bread, fruit and vegetables.
We want to stop wasting food, feeding people rather than bins, and so we also welcome donations, from individuals and local businesses, of food they can’t use. Just bring it along to the cafe and it will be gratefully received by volunteers who will put it in the fridge.
We’ll aim to update this page with details of the food we’ve got in the Byker Fridge at the moment, so you can check if you can use it before you come down!
