Introducing the Flushing Community Fridge
On April 18th, a new feature was launched at the Free Synagogue of Flushing! We teamed up with local leaders and the Youth MinKwon Center’s Youth Empowerment Program to establish a community refrigerator to provide much needed food to the Flushing community.
As a predominately low-income and immigrant neighborhood, over 60% of Flushing residents are rent-burdened and food pantry visits have grown exponentially since the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Flushing Community Fridge is a well-stocked, standalone refrigerator where residents and local businesses are welcome to put food in or take food out. By alleviating the pressure put on existing organizations and providing essential goods free of charge, the Community Fridge is a new mutual aid initiative addressing food insecurity and food waste.
The Community Fridge was made possible by the Free Synagogue of Flushing, its professional staff and Board of Trustees, and a successful crowdfunding campaign where over $2,600 was raised primarily through small donations.
Founded in 1917 by a dedicated group of women, the Free Synagogue of Flushing has been a part of the Flushing community for over a century
