NEENAH – Hope Fridge opened the first community refrigerator in the Fox Cities last month to assist people experiencing food insecurity, and organizers said the response has been overwhelmingly positive.

The fridge is located within a colorful wooden shelter at the Neenah home of Danae Steele and Marijke van Roojen, 428 Ninth St. Two more community fridges are in the works in Oshkosh.

Hope Fridge is a mutual aid project that provides, maintains and stocks community fridges in the Fox Valley for people in need of food. Steele and van Roojen provided the land, installed the electrical line and pay the electrical bills. The fridge, along with an adjacent pantry for nonperishable goods, is stocked by volunteers.

It’s open 24 hours a day, and there’s no paperwork required to obtain food.
