Brno, Jan 10 (BD) – On Monday, Brno got its first public fridge and public cupboard, the so-called ‘Share Point pro Brno’. Located at Římské náměstí, it is a self-service point where citizens can leave food and clothes for those in need.
There have been two separate initiatives behind this idea – the informal Public Fridge group and People in Safety s.r.o. The groups manage the operation of the public fridge and cupboard. Brno-City Hall (radnice Brno-střed) joined the project and supported Share Point with a subsidy of CZK 39,000 and provided the location.
