The Sharing Fridge is a way to make food available to the needy in different communities around Dubai.
Set up by Sumayyah Sayed, an Australian expat residing in Dubai, the Sharing Fridge is a community-driven initiative. The concept is to place many sharing fridges across different areas in Dubai and stock each one with food for the needy.
Dubai residents are being mobilized to participate in this campaign through The Sharing Fridge Facebook page that already has over 23,000 registered members since its set up in 2016.
Open to the public it is a way for everyone to share their food with the people who make their lives easier. It may not be much, but it’s a start.
If you have cooked a bit more than usual, put some in a container and drop off to one of the fridges.
Grab an extra loaf of bread or an extra kilo of fruit when at the grocery store, or even a pack of water bottles (it gets so hot here and is gratefully received).
Those who want to contribute and become part of The Sharing Fridge initiative should request to join its Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/groups/uaefridges/
