Buddy System is establishing community refrigerators in the Miami area!
The hope is to give the community a way to fight food insecurity by
empowering neighbors to help neighbors.
How Can I Help?
Every donation -- no matter the size -- helps!
This is a big financial undertaking, especially for a new nonprofit.
But we're up to the challenge!
All donations are tax-deductible.
2. Plug in a fridge
We're looking for local businesses to plug in our fridges!
Ideally fridges will be available to the public 24/7 --
perhaps on a sidewalk or directly outside a place of business.
If you're interested in partnering with us in this way, please email for more information.
Volunteers can sign up to restock, clean and survey current fridges as well as implement future fridges!
Register to volunteer here and then look out for our weekly volunteer opportunity newsletters:
