Walking to the fridge every time you want a snack is something most people take for granted. A new community-led program in Nashville is working to make food security a reality for everyone. When Emily Lawlor moved from rural New York to Nashville this year, she couldn’t ignore the economic disparities of those living in the city. The 19-year-old began brainstorming ways to help her new neighbors, and the community fridge program was born about a month ago. It’s simple. The fridges — Lawlor is up to two — are in public spaces, typically outside of businesses, and are open to all. Need food? No problem, help yourself. Want to donate? Great, put it in the fridge. The idea is centered around the community helping its neighbors in their time of need. It take around 50 people to maintain one fridge.
