Capturing insights to help provide more meaningful solutions

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 that means for every $1 donated to the program, a family in need receives $2 worth of fresh food.

Our commitment to measurement

The Fruit Box Group has invested in a monitoring and evaluation initiative for The One Box Program. This initiative aims to measure the program in collaboration with The One Box recipient families, as well as explore how the delivered food is used and what are the range of benefits and impact.

“This program is as much about learning as it is about giving away free boxes of produce to families in need. Nothing can be solved if we don’t truly understand what the problems are. Our observations at this stage of the program are critical to understanding better what we need to do to have a sustainable impact in the future.”
