We’re excited to announce the release of the first research report for The One Box. Reimagining Fresh Food Relief in Australia outlines the findings from Monash University’s independent, year-long study to evaluate the impact of our food relief program.
One of the key findings is that for every $1 donated, almost $2 was received in the hands of recipients. This value-add of nearly double is driven by The One Box being able to draw on the expertise, resources and supply chain of The Fruit Box Group. Monash researchers also identified that beyond the financial impacts and practical support of a weekly box of food, The One Box plays a critical role in bridging barriers and building stronger connections between recipient families and their communities.
We will continue to grow our impact, improve our programs and use our platforms to boost the voices from the communities we reach, with a view to getting critical conversations about the reality of food insecurity and hunger on the national agenda.
