What is the Fresh Food Project?

With an unprecedented number of Australians experiencing food insecurity since COVID-19, The One Box is continuing to look for ways to expand access to affordable fresh produce to more people in the community.

The Fresh Food Project supports charities, councils, universities and community groups across Australia by providing access to affordable, high-quality fresh produce and staples boxes at approximately 50% off the recommended retail value.

How Does It Work?

Our fresh food boxes are the perfect complementary service to existing non-perishable food pantries, ensuring your community members experiencing food insecurity also have access to regular and reliable fresh food.

We offer free delivery within our delivery zone for orders of 10 boxes or more. Weekly or one-off orders are available, as suited to your fresh food funding requirements.

The One Box team can also assist you in your funding or grant applications for community fresh food.

And, just like our pre-packed boxes, we procure and deliver the bulk produce at a cost of approximately 50% of the recommended retail value.

The One Box, Core Program

The One Box recognises the chronic nature of food insecurity in Australia and offers a nutrition-focused food relief program where families experiencing hardship can access a regular and reliable box of quality fresh produce and wholemeal bread over the full school year.

In 2023, The One Box aims to support upwards of 2,000 households across Australia with ongoing access to high-quality produce (RRP $23), equating to over 100,000 fresh food boxes.

The One Box model is unique, leveraging The Fruit Box Group’s national infrastructure, purchasing power and supply chain to drive an efficient food charity. The considerable financial savings gained from utilising this existing infrastructure means that a greater proportion of resources can be directed towards distributing and donating fresh food to families in need.

We’re proud of our innovative approach to food relief that means for every $1 donated to the program, a family in need can access almost $2 worth of fresh food.
