Halifax Community Fridge

 Our mission is simple: to offer a free, entirely community-run, 24/7 mutual aid space for anyone experiencing food insecurity in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Explore our initiatives, discover ways to contribute, and join us in making a difference.

What We Do

1

Free Food Service

All fridge and food items are available for free. All are welcome to access the fridge. We do not require any personal information to access the fridge. The fridge/pantry is open 24/7. 

2

Mutual Aid

We are a mutual aid organization. This means our community takes responsibility for protecting and providing for each other. We operate in solidarity, not charity. 

3

Community Building

Without the support of volunteers, local businesses, and community groups the fridge could not function. We continue to build a local network passionate about food security.

Land Acknowledgement

This project was dreamt, conceptualized, and materialized on Mi'kma'ki, the unsurrendered and unceded territory of the Mi'kmaq Peoples. Indigenous peoples have lived in balance and reciprocity with the natural world for centuries.  

Land-back and Indigenous sovereignty is at the forefront of our agenda to decolonize food systems. The Community Fridge is grounded in stewardship, community care, and reciprocity. In the Canadian TRC Honouring the Truth, Reconciling for the Future, Anishinaabe Elder Mary Deleary provides a radiant reminder that the work on behalf of settlers must be in the spirit of land-back, in a way that honours the inherent self-determination of Indigenous peoples:

“Our relatives who have come from across the water [non-Aboriginal people], you still have work to do on your road.... The land is made up of the dust of our ancestors’ bones. And so to reconcile with this land and everything that has happened, there is much work to be done ... in order to create balance."
