What We Do
The Germantown Community Fridges, located in Philadelphia, are a
mutual aid resource dedicated to helping deal with food insecurity and provide healthy free food in 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 Sharing Excess, Bredenbecks, Weavers Way Co-Op, Merzbacher's Bakery, MOM's Organic Market, Crust Vegan Bakery, Farmer Jawn, Bunny Hop Philly, Philly Food Rescue, 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 many different tasks including but not limited to: checking in on the fridges, cleaning fridges and 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 and monetary donations via Venmo and CashApp. Or you can purchase something off our Amazon Wishlist, and we'll deliver it to the fridges and pantries on your behalf!
