The One Box

Launched in 2017, our charity, The One Box provides families experiencing hardship with a weekly box of fresh produce and staples throughout the school year. Each week, the team at The Fruit Box Group hand packs locally sourced, high-quality fresh fruit and vegetables, bread and milk. Families collect their boxes from local community organisations and schools across Australia.

In 2022, the program is supporting 2,500 families weekly equating to 100,000 boxes for the school year. This will also see The One Box partnering with over 70 schools and community centres nationally.

Why is The One Box different?

By leveraging off existing resources and the proven expertise of The Fruit Box Group, the program helps to alleviate food insecurity in Australia that delivers maximum value to the community in a dignified way. The One Box model is fresh, efficient and much needed.

The impact of The One Box has been verified by our research partners at Monash University and we’re excited to announce the release of the first research report for the program. Reimagining Fresh Food Relief in Australia outlines the findings from Monash University’s independent, year-long study to evaluate the impact of our food relief program.

One of the key findings is that for every $1 donated, almost $2 was received in the hands of recipients. This value-add of nearly double is driven by The One Box being able to draw on the expertise, resources and supply chain of The Fruit Box Group. The researchers also identified that beyond the financial impacts and practical support of a weekly box of food, The One Box plays a critical role in bridging barriers and building stronger connections between recipient families and their communities.
