Marin Community Fridges
Marin Community Fridges are a mutual aid space where people take responsibility for caring for one another by redistributing resources. Fridges are set up and run by the people, for the people, and they serve as a solution for both food insecurity and food waste. Free food for all. No questions asked. Take what you need, leave what you don’t!
