For the third year in a row now, community fridges are being installed all over Dubai in an attempt to provide free food for the poor and needy during Ramadan. The idea started back in 2016 with one fridge and there are over 160 fridges installed this year that can all be located on Google Maps.
How does it work?
You simply need to email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell them that you’d like to adopt a fridge. After receiving a confirmation, you need to set it up and share its location on Google Maps. The fridge should be put in a place where it is easily accessible to workers. The fridge can be refilled from 10 to 15 times daily. Each fridge caters to around 100-200 people and contains meal packs, fruits, water and juice bottles, laban, dry fruits and biscuits.
What food items are allowed?
Drinks (juices and soda) water, laban, fruit (bananas, apples, oranges, grapes, watermelon in portions) and vegetables (tomatoes, cucumbers, onions). Dry food such as dry fruits (dates), biscuits, nuts and crisps can also be added.
You can easily locate a fridge by following Ramadan Sharing Fridges on [Facebook].
