The Co-op is seeking a local Manx community partner to establish a local community fridge on the Isle of Man.

A Community Fridge is a social space that brings people together to eat, connect, learn new skills and reduce food waste.

"This is a great opportunity for a local group to increase services to our local community, and to benefit from the leadership and guidance from the UK's leading community fridge network," said Andy Corrie, Area Manager for the Manx Co-operative Society.

The successful group will receive £4,000 in direct financial funding, support & training to set up a fridge, and membership to Hubbub’s Community Fridge Network which operates community fridges across these Isles. The Community Fridge Network offers free guidance to groups wanting to set up their own community fridge.

Local groups who wish to apply must apply by the end of January online here.
