What We Do


Access to food is a human right. Hosted on the property of the Unitarian Universalists of Mt. Airy, and fueled by community donations, the fridge and pantry offer free 24/7 access to the public without the barriers or registration or income verification. Visit us! Take what you need, as much as you need. And, if you are able, leave what you can.

We currently provide shelf-stable dry goods and produce, as well as menstruation and sexual health products, diapers, and pre-package baby food. Check back for updates on our progress!

COMING IN FEBRUARY, 2023! A community fridge which will share frozen and perishable items, as well as home-cooked meals! Check back for updates on our progress!
