Through our research partnership with the Monash Business School; Department of Accounting, we’re measuring the impact of The One Box.
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. This relationship enables The One Box to provide $25 RRP worth of fresh fruit, vegetables and staples in each box at the cost of only half this amount. 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.
By purchasing fruit and vegetables that are fresh instead of rescued, we can not only provide high quality produce to families, but also ensure maximum economic and environmental sustainability.
We’re proud of our innovative approach to food relief which means we can convert each $1 donation to The One Box into almost $2 of fresh food in the hands of recipients.
The need for reliable fresh food relief has fundamental benefits beyond financial or nutritional benefits. The One Box plays a critical role in building community connection and trust, inclusion and dignity, and greater family wellbeing.
