Helping families in need one box at a time Providing Our Community With Affordable Fresh Produce FIND OUT MORE

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 and nutritious food on the table. 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 over the full school year.


How Does it Work?

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


2021 Program

In 2021, our core program has an ambitious target to donate over 50,000 boxes of fresh produce and staples to families experiencing hardship across the country.

Recognising the increased need for low-cost, fresh food in our communities, we’ve launched the Fresh Food Project. This pilot program provides access to affordable fresh produce and staples, at approx 50% off its RRP, to single households, families, students and seniors.

2017 Pilot

We distributed 25,000 boxes over 25 weeks to 1,000 families in VIC.

2018 Program

The One Box expanded in 2018 distributing 30,000 boxes to families in VIC and NSW.

2019 Program

In 2019, 40,000 boxes of fresh produce and staples were donated to families in need across VIC, NSW, ACT, QLD, SA & WA.

2020 Program

During COVID-19, we donated 40,000 boxes of fresh produce to families across VIC, NSW, QLD, SA & WA.

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.
