What is it?
The Rosscarrock Community Fridge, located by the community hall, is a shared space that provides 24/7 access to free, fresh, and nutritious food for anyone who may need it without judgement. It’s also a community hub creating connections between neighbours, friends, and complete strangers. The fridge is a partnership between the Rosscarrock Community Association and a mutual aid group called The Hatch.
