The One Box recognises the chronic nature of food insecurity in Australia and offers a nutrition-focused food relief program where families experiencing hardship can access a regular and reliable box of quality fresh produce and staples over the full school year.
In 2020, The One Box delivered fresh produce to over 1,000 families each week during the school term. That’s 40,000 boxes and 400,000 kgs of fresh produce to families experiencing food insecurity across Australia.
The One Box model is unique, leveraging The Fruit Box Group’s national infrastructure, purchasing power and supply chain to drive an efficient food charity. The considerable financial savings gained from utilising this existing infrastructure means that a greater proportion of resources can be directed towards distributing and donating fresh food to families in need.
We’re proud of our innovative approach to food relief that means for every $1 donated to the program, a family in need can access $2 worth of fresh food.
