Hope Fridge is a mutual aid group based out of the Fox Valley in Wisconsin. Our goal is to ensure everyone in our community always has enough food to eat so they can survive AND thrive. 

Hope Fridge and its members provide, help maintain, and keep stocked working outdoor fridges filled with donated fresh food throughout our community. 

Hope Fridge parters with restaurants, markets, and like-minded community partners to help combat food insecurity and food waste in the Fox Valley by ensuring those in need are connected with available and/or excess food. 

Thank you for being a part of Hope Fridge! 

Cold Food, Warm Hearts.
