With great fruit delivery comes great social responsibility
Australia may be the lucky country but many people can’t afford to put fresh food on the table on a regular basis. The One Box is an initiative of The Fruit Box Group that aims to address this problem.
In 2017 The Fruit Box Group launched a new community program where fresh produce was purchased directly from local markets and suppliers and distributed to families doing it tough.
Since launching the program in May 2017 we have distributed over 48,000 boxes filled with fresh fruit, vegies, milk and bread was provided to families in need via our community partners in Victoria and NSW. We will be expanding to Queensland, WA and SA in 2019!
We work closely with a range of community partners and primary schools. The dedicated community centres act as pick up hubs for recipients so families have the opportunity to access a range of support programs and activities. Our aim is not only provide beautiful fresh produce to families but create a strong link with organisations that can help in other ways.
If you would like to know how you or your company can get involved please send us an enquiry via firstname.lastname@example.org
