Fridge Fight: Refrigerator Meant To Give Free Food To The Hungry Dumped In The Ocean

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - A fridge fight ends up in the ocean in Rockaway Beach, Queens after a refrigerator used to help feed the hungry was stolen.

The fridge had been set up on Beach 91st Street by the Rockaway Mutual Aid Network.

It was stolen on Friday and discovered hours later out in the ocean on top of a jetty.

"This is a basic human right, to have access to food. And if we are privileged enough to have access to food, then we need to do our part every single day to make sure our neighbor, someone in our community we may or may not know, has that same access," said Felicia Singh of Rockaway Revolution.

There's no word yet on who stole the refrigerator, but some who live in the area suspect it could be neighbors who complained about the fridge on social media, and later praised its disappearance.
