Friends & volunteers

The Keru community fridge is a non-profit project run by its core team members and volunteers. We welcome everyone to work on a voluntary basis with us. We can offer new learning experiences as a part of our international team. Keru’s activities can also be supported in various ways such as by donating one’s own surplus food into the Kerukaappi or by sharing information on Keru project and events.

Shops, Cafes & Restaurants

The Keru community fridge receives most of its food donations from nearby shops, cafés and restaurants. We collect food donations everyday. Please, contact Waste Food Crew if your company wishes to become a surplus food donor for Keru community fridge.
