When arriving at a sitting, how often do you find fridge full or empty? and do you leave it as you found it?
I prefer to find it pretty empty, as long as there are milk, bread & eggs available, the first day is easily survivable without the need to immediately go to the shop. I normally take a bag of supplies with me and of course anything from my own fridge at home.
I have been overwhelmed on occasions with a fridge full of good intentions and enough food that I cannot possibly eat it all on my own, its a great gesture and it is appreciated but unfortunately often some of it goes to waste.
Most HO say help yourself to what you can find but I always replace what I use as it feels wrong not to!
Fortunately I do not have any horror stories about what I have found in fridges.
