Updated 10/12: Someone vandalized the fridge, and it is now out of commission.
The East Village Community Fridge debuted yesterday outside S'MAC on the northwest corner of First Avenue and 12th Street.
Here's how it works via East Village Neighbors: "Free food for anyone in need. Neighbors put food in; neighbors in need take food out." (The donated food needs to be unopened. Fruits and vegetables are welcome too.)
This is a project between S'MAC owners Sarita and Caesar Ekya along with East Village Neighbors, a local volunteer group, and Change Food, a social marketing nonprofit.
The Community Fridge will be available outside S'MAC 24/7.
