We are excited to announce the publication of the first annual report for The One Box. In 2019, we distributed over 40,000 boxes of fresh produce and staples to families across Australia facing hardship and adversity.
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. Each week, our team hand packs fresh fruit and vegies from Aussie farmers along with bread and fresh milk. Working with local community groups and schools to identify families in need, we then deliver those boxes to hubs for collection by the families.
Thank you to the schools and community partners that participated in The One Box program in 2019. Also, our heartfelt thanks to our donors, supporters and corporate partners for your ongoing support of the program.
Without the dedication and commitment of all our partners, The One Box would not reach the families that need it.
