Fridgeport is an open access refrigerator initiative built through the power of mutual aid. These stigma free resources are supplied by each according to their ability, to each according to their needs. It is not an attempt to solve the food insecurity problem in Bridgeport, but a community building effort to hopefully find the path to get to that end.
“Mutual aid is a form of political participation in which people take responsibility for caring for one another and changing political conditions, not just through symbolic acts or putting pressure on their representatives in government but by actually building new social relations that are more survivable.”
– Dean Spade, ‘Mutual Aid: Building Solidarity during This Crisis (And The Next)’
