KERU COMMUNITY FRIDGE
Keru is a non-profit open community fridge located at the Setlementtitalo in Kallio, Helsinki. The aim of the concept and activities is to reduce food waste and to support sustainable food culture. Keru offers an easy way to take part in solving the global food waste issue. It is open and free to everyone who wants to share and/or collect food.
Keru Community Fridge opened on 3.9.2018 as a pilot project, which has been on-going since then. The aim of the pilot is to gain experience and possibly continue the project on a regular basis after the trial period. The pilot project is run by the Waste Food Crew – a group of urban activists and volunteers in collaboration with the main partner Setlementtiliitto. Keru is inspired by successful food sharing movements across Europe.
