IF YOU SHOWED SOLIDARITY …

IF YOU SHOWED SOLIDARITY IN GREAT THINGS, AS WELL AS YOU DO IN SMALL THINGS, YOUR HEAVY AND DRAMATIC PROBLEMS WOULD BE SOLVED IN A VERY SHORT TIME.
THE INITIATIVE OF THE SOLIDARITY FRIDGE IS, FOR EVERYBODY, THE PROOF OF WHAT MENTIONED ABOVE.
YOU ARE THE ONES, ON EARTH, WHO WANT TO SUFFER, TO DIE, TO HATE, NOT TO LOVE.
OUR HOPE IS ADDRESSED TO THOSE SOULS, A FEW MILLIONS, THAT HAVE REALIZED THE CHRISTIC LOVE IN THE WORLD.
IF WE ARE STILL HERE, AMONG YOU, WE OWE THIS TO THEIR UNIVERSAL SPIRITS.
PEACE!


THE "ALIENS" AS YOU IRONICALLY DEFINE US

Solidarity Fridge Network
Solidarity Fridge is a project with a boldly goal: to fight against food waste. 40% of food products in the world don’t even get sold, because they do not achieve the perfect look, not being part of the latest food trends, or because they are too close to the sell-by date. Most of these products are in good condition and the fact is that they just end up in the garbage.

frigoThe sell-by date does not mean that a product is unsafe or dangerous. When a product is close to its best before date, the food still can be perfectly acceptable.
Solidarity Fridge is an original project born in Galdakao, a little village of Spain. The brainchild of Alvaro Saiz, founder and president of the “Asociación Humanitaria de Voluntarios de Galdakao GBGE Galdakaoko Boluntarioen Gizarte Elkartea” (Galdakao Humanitarian Volunteers Association). Its goal is to fight against food waste and everyone can take or lend food inside
independently of his economic situation.
The first Solidarity Fridge was installed on April 29th 2015 in Galdakao after many months of work and research by the GBGE in coordination with the township council. In just a month of pilot testing, we realized that the project had achieved its goal, saving 200 kg (about 440 pounds) of food that, otherwise, would have ended up in a landfill. This encouraged us to share the project with anyone who would like to replicate it locally in a legal and secure way.
Nowadays we have seven Solidarity Fridges all over the country: in Galdakao, in the Basque Country University, in Vitoria, in Quero (Toledo), in Valencia (Galileo Galilei College Dorm) and in Donostia. In addition, more than ten townships are in process of installing one in their corresponding areas.

How a Refrigerator is saving the world
frigo1In Spain, leftovers are making the world a better place. In April, the Basque town of Galdakao set up Spain's first Solidarity Fridge. The Solidarity Fridge is a communal refrigerator, marked by a fence (lest it be mistaken for someone's discarded appliance), where people and businesses can deposit all the totally edible food they were going to throw away.
This Solidarity Fridge is the brainchild of Álvaro Saiz, a member of the city's volunteer association. The association was contemplating how much viable food supermarkets threw in the trash (which, if it is at all similar to the amount thrown out in America, is quite a lot), when Saiz realized they could replace one of those trash bins with a refrigerator. After receiving € 5,000 from the city to finance the fridge and test its health and safety, the association did just that and it's been a huge hit. Saiz likens it to the German food-sharing site, but more accessible for those who aren't comfortable with technology.
Though the fridge may help some of the town’s needier residents, it is intended more to fight food waste than poverty and hunger. As Saiz said, "This isn’t charity. It’s about making use of food that would otherwise end up in the bin. It doesn’t matter who takes it—Julio Iglesias [the best-selling Spanish-language singer of all-time] could stop by and take the food—at the end of the day, it’s about recovering the value of food products and fighting against waste.”
There are only a few rules about what you can donate: no raw meat, eggs or seafood, nothing past its expiration date and homemade food must include a label listing when it was made, so that one of the Solidarity Fridge's volunteers can discard it if no one eats it within four days. But, according to one volunteer, the fridge is too popular for that to be an issue. In fact, the fridge has been such a success that other towns and cities have looked to it for inspiration; Murcia, a town in the south of Spain, has established its own solidarity fridge, and other communities, within Spain and without, have contacted Saiz about starting up similar projects. Maybe someday solidarity fridges could be feeding the whole world.
