Frequently Asked Questions
WHERE IS YOUR FOOD MADE?
We make our food by hand in our kitchen in the Fulton Market district of Chicago.
HOW OFTEN DO YOU FILL YOUR FRIDGES?
We stock our fridges with fresh meals, snacks, and proteins Monday through Friday at most locations. Unsold items are donated to area food pantries through our partnership with local food rescue organizations.
CAN I HEAT YOUR JARS?
Yes, some of our jars are heatable. Look for the orange heatable symbol on the jar label.
CAN I PUT YOUR JARS IN THE DISHWASHER?
Our heatable jars (jars with the heatable symbol) are dishwasher safe! Our non-heatable jars are not dishwasher friendly, we recommend hand-washing these if you wish to reuse them!
WHERE CAN I RECYCLE MY JAR?
Our jars are all 100% recyclable and can be recycled in any recycle bin. You can also recycle them back at the Fridge on your next visit!
ARE THE INGREDIENTS ORGANIC AND LOCAL?
We source all of our ingredients from carefully vetted sources and we use organic/local ingredients when possible.
HOW DO GREENS WORK?
Enter the phone number registered with this app when you check out at the Fridge in order to accrue Greens. Earn 1 Green for every $2 you spend. 50 Greens earn you one jar ($9 code).

See My Fridge Rewards Terms for more details.
CAN YOU TELL ME ABOUT YOUR FOOD?
All of our items are made fresh by hand in our Fulton Market kitchen and delivered via temperature-regulated vehicles to our Fridges. From washing and chopping produce to making dressings from scratch, we pride ourselves on the level of care in our kitchen. We are obsessed with quality, and actively partner with our suppliers to source responsibly grown and harvested ingredients. Unsold food is donated to local community members in need.
HOW DOES THE FARMER’S FRIDGE TEAM UPHOLD ETHICAL STANDARDS?
All unsold items that are still fresh are donated to area food pantries. Our food scraps and salads that cannot be donated due to expiration are composted. In addition, our jar packaging is BPA free and 100% recyclable. We provide on-site recycling at our Fridges. Finally, our Fridges run on approximately $25 of electricity per month, far less than the energy consumption at most fast food chain locations.
