Community Fridge

We believe that no matter who you are or what your situation is - you deserve delicious and nutritious food. So we started the first community fridge in the state of Iowa. 

It's a really simple concept - there is a fridge and pantry, its stocked as best we can 24/7, and if you're hungry you use it. That's it. There are no sign ups, there are no prerequisites, no tracking. 

If you would like to purchase foods we grow and help us get paid for our labor - please leave a note while purchasing that it's to go into the fridge! 

We run on donations - and we would love to have your support! We have a Venmo - @ community-fridge-dsm and a wonderful Patreon group that can be found here :

If you run or work anywhere that routinely throws away excess food items - please send us a message! We would love to rescue it and get it to folks who need some help.
