The Sharing Fridge is a way to make food available to the needy in different communities around the UAE.

Set up by Sumayyah Sayed in 2016, an Australian expat residing in Dubai, the Sharing Fridge is a community-driven initiative. The concept is to place many sharing fridges across different areas in Dubai, Sharjah Abu Dhabi … and stock each one with food for the needy.

UAE residents are being mobilized to participate in this campaign through The Sharing Fridge Facebook pages dedicated to each city. It is a way for everyone to share their food with the people who make their lives easier. It may not be much, but it’s a start.

Grab an extra loaf of bread or an extra kilo of fruit when at the grocery store (orange, pomegranate, apple…), or even a pack of water bottles (it gets so hot here and is gratefully received). Dates, canned food, cucumbers/carrots, instant soup and instant pasta are also ideal to fill the fridges.

Those who want to contribute and become part of The Sharing Fridge initiative should request to join:
