Our mission is to do good at every part of the food chain
Buy Fair: We buy food from local farmers, grocery producers and distributors at fair prices and stick with them season after season.
Employ Fair: We give asylum seekers and new arrivals (around half of our 25 staff) that crucial first job in Australia.
Build Community: We deliver our food orders to a network of over 70 volunteer Food Host pick-up points across Melbourne.
All Profits Go to CERES Environmental Education: All our profits help CERES, Australia’s most visited environment park, teach children and adults to care for our planet. Since 1990 over a million school children and adults have participated in CERES programs.
Offset Carbon: We offset our delivery vehicles carbon emissions with contributions to the Lao Cook-stove Project.
