What is The One Box?

In a lucky country like Australia it’s really sad that so many families can’t afford to put fresh food on the table or even provide their kids with nutritious lunches. With thousands of children going without, we felt it was our social responsibility to try and make a difference.

The One Box program is an initiative that provides Australian families in need with a free weekly box full of fresh fruit, vegies, milk and bread.

With the help of local community agencies, families doing it tough around Australia can receive a weekly box of fresh food to help make things a little easier.


How Does it Work?

Each week, our team at The Fruit Box Group hand packs fresh fruit and vegies from the local market along with bread and milk. Working with local community groups to identify families in need, we then deliver those boxes to community hubs for collection by the families.

Fresh Food Relief & Dignity

The overwhelming feedback from recipients is that our produce is fresh, not processed or rescued, which nurtures the dignity of those that need it most.
