How it works

We source the highest quality, locally produced, seasonal organic food available. Starting with CERES very own market garden in Coburg, and prioritising the small scale growers closest to Melbourne.

The CERES Fair Food team gathers and packs the best of the season with care, creating a wide variety of fruit and veg boxes to maximise affordability and to suit all lifestyles and budgets whilst respecting and supporting the incredible network of growers, farmers and producers in Victoria.

Orders are delivered direct to homes across Melbourne, or to a once-weekly Food Host in your neighbourhood. Food Hosts volunteer their verandah or shed as a collection point for the neighbourhood, where the community can meet and share, accessing bulk groceries, weekly supplies and wonderful produce.

Sign up and chose your closest Food Host for free delivery – you can find out which one suits you best here. Alternatively, choose our carbon neutral home delivery – servicing most Melbourne suburbs 5 days a week from Monday-Friday.

You can even select items and add them to your cart as ‘standing orders’, meaning the order will repeat weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on what options you choose. You can pay for your orders in total upfront or we can deduct the weekly amount from your credit card on a weekly basis.


Remember to pack down your box and leave it at your Host in the designated area, or wherever your home delivery is left, for our drivers to collect the following week. We love extending the life of all our infrastructure and the delivery boxes are no exception. We will reuse them and then recycle once their delivery life is up.

Just by buying your organic fruit and vegetables from the CERES Fair Food, your groceries are going to good work by:

  • Strengthening community food systems
  • Creating fair working conditions for farmers and disadvantaged workers
  • Protecting the environment

All while you get tastier, fresher & healthier grub at the best possible price!

So put your groceries to good work.
