Scotland does not fall short of community fridges. After all, they can work to a multitude of different models.
But what exactly is a community fridge?
To summarise, it is an accessible space for members of the community, regardless of their age, income, gender or race, to distribute surplus food that would otherwise be discarded with the aim of reducing food waste.
This food can vary from sauces, pantry essentials, boxed or canned meals and non-perishable proteins to fresh produce (such as fruit, vegetables and eggs), cereals and fruit juices.
Donations are also accepted from local food businesses, producers and gardens.
And there are no restrictions as to who can make food collections either.
But not all of us are aware of where exactly these community fridges are based. There could be one right on your doorstep.
This is why we have put together an interactive map of those located in the north, north-east, Tayside and Fife for you to spot those nearby.
So whether you are looking to make a donation or collection, you can find all the necessary information below.
