Garden Pool is celebrating the launch of our new community fridge program! Mesa Councilmember Jenn Duff and other Mesa Council members will be there, as well as members of the Maricopa Food Coalition. Come by and join us for the official ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday, August 7th, at 10am. The fridge will also be showcased on Fox 10, as well as Abc 15 News, so tune in to learn more about the program!
We recognize that food waste and community hunger are growing concerns. Garden Pool has joined a growing effort to tackle food waste with our community fridge! The aim of the fridge is to eliminate food waste and provide fresh food for the community in an easy and accessible way. By collecting leftover fresh food from local businesses and community members and making it available to local residents, the Downtown Mesa Community Fridge will address the threat of malnutrition, food deserts, and more!
