In any given community there are always those who have extra and those who don’t have enough. We have seen some innovative methods for redistributing excess goods, such as Pumpipumpe in Switzerland — a scheme which sees residents place stickers on their mailbox to denote goods they want to lend to neighbours. Now, the people of Galdakao — a small city in Spain — are using The Solidarity Fridge to redistribute food. The large white fridge sits in the middle of town, and provides a place for residents and restaurants to drop leftovers for their neighbors to enjoy.
