How did the People's Fridge start?
The People's Fridge Brixton started life in May 2016 when...
a group of food traders and activists in Brixton were inspired by similar fridges in Germany, Spain, India and Somerset
a team of 30+ people ran a crowdfunding campaign raising over £2,200 to buy and run me
Jamie Oliver heard about us and invited me to be on the telly
The team did some work behind the scenes – insurance, a volunteer team, food safety and other exciting stuff – and are testing how I work in Pop Brixton
