Feed the Fridge, started by Medium Rare’s Mark Bucher,  places refrigerators in local communities and fills them with donations from area restaurants to stock them daily with fresh meals. Starting Wednesday, they’ve added baby formula to the fridges.

There are fridges in the following areas in MoCo:

• Mary’s Center: 344 University Blvd W (Silver Spring)

• Einstein High School: 11135 Newport Mill Rd (Kensington)

• Gaithersburg High School: 101 Education Blvd (Gaithersburg)

• Takoma Park Rec Center: 7315 New Hampshire Ave (Takoma Park)

Coming Soon: Takoma Park Community Center: 7500 Maple Ave (Takoma Park)

Per Feed the Fridge: Feed the Fridge an effort to bring nourishment where there is hunger while helping small, local restaurants stay in business. We do this by placing refrigerators around the DC metro area and paying local restaurants to fill them with fresh meals daily. We also hand-deliver holiday meals to seniors who cannot leave their homes.

Though we started as a short-term response to the pandemic, we have realized that we play a major role in solving hunger by transforming “food insecurity” into “meal security.”
In just over a year, Feed the Fridge has increased community food supply chains by:
• Placing 9 refrigerators at recreation centers, schools and other locations in Washington, D.C., Montgomery County and Prince George’s County, Maryland.
• Providing more than 100,000 (as of 1/21/22) free meals to anyone who needs them.
• Through donations, paying participating restaurants more than $723,000 in 2021 to provide meals, which in turn helps those restaurants stay open and pay employees.To learn more about Feed the Fridge, and to donate, visit feedthefridge.org
