Our mission to help alleviate food insecurity reached new heights, as The One Box proudly distributed over 1 million kilograms of nutritious fresh fruit, vegies and staples to over 2,500 households in need. Working with a dedicated network of 97 partner schools and community organisations enabled us to provide approximately 115,000 fresh food boxes to those experiencing hardship across Australia.
Effective, efficient, and relevant food relief has been at the heart of The One Box ever since its establishment in 2017. By leveraging The Fruit Box Group’s existing national supply chain and improving our financial efficiencies, we were able to convert every $1 donation into almost $2 of fresh food in the hands of recipients. In doing so, The One Box not only reached more families but consistently provided them with more than $25 RRP worth of high-quality produce they otherwise could not access.
With the growth of our social enterprise and the gracious support of our donors and corporate partners, The One Box will continue to assist upwards of 2,500 households on an ongoing basis in 2023. We also would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the hardworking staff and volunteers at our partner schools and community organisations, who continue to bring our vision and mission to life. Together, we’re making a meaningful difference in the lives of families in need, one box at a time.
