What We Do
Germantown Community Fridges are two very busy sidewalk fridges and pantries located at 20 W Armat st & 19 E High st. Their mission is to help fight hunger and food insecurity and provide free, supplemental food in Germantown, Philadelphia. Stocked by the community, for the community, anyone who needs food is welcome to take it. The fridges are maintained and stocked by volunteers and community members.

The Germantown Community Fridges are supported by an incredible network of community partners who donate to the fridges on a regular basis. These partners include Northwest Mutual Aid Collective, Sharing Excess, Bredenbecks, Weavers Way Co-Op, Merzbacher's Bakery, Crust Vegan Bakery, Germantown Kitchen Garden, Taproot Farms, Philly Food Works, Philly Food Rescue, Double Trellis, Food Connect and others. We thank these partners. If you are interested in making a one-time or regular donation, please contact us, we would love to work with you.
There are many ways you can get involved with the fridges. Our amazing volunteers help us with different tasks including but not limited to: organizing and cleaning fridges, breaking down boxes, picking up donations from community partners, grocery shopping, and more. If you are interested in volunteering, more information is available using the link below.
The fridges rely on generous donations from community members and those caring about us from afar. We accept food donations and monetary donations via Venmo and CashApp. Or you can purchase something from our Amazon wishlist or Target registry, and we'll deliver it to the fridges and pantries on your behalf.
