Uckfield Community Fridge

The cost of living crisis takes its grip at the same time as the Winter beckons, creating a perfect storm of poverty.


It’s set to be a truly harrowing time for many amongst our community, where some are expected to have to choose between ‘heating’ and ‘eating’. So it’s crucial that as a community we try our utmost to be kind and generous to each other.


Thankfully, there’s plenty of generosity and goodwill about here in Uckfield and a place you can top up on both of them as well as grab yourself a free loaf is the award winning Uckfield Community Fridge.


In Mid-September Uckfield Community Fridge took to Facebook with delight to announce “we’re delighted to receive an award from the 3VA – Voluntary Action in Eastbourne, Lewes and Wealden at their celebrating communities event. It means a lot to receive our first award. Uckfield Community Fridge is very much a team effort and we will enjoy sharing this with the whole team… albeit the 4 directors, 28 volunteers, huge array of food partners and the wonderful community who visit us each time we open”.


The Community Fridge will be an absolute lifeline to so many this winter, it’s consistently fully stocked with grub and goodwill so if you need it please do pop in. The Community Fridge wouldn’t be able to provide this lifeline without our wonderful local supermarkets and the valiant volunteers.
