What is a Food Host?

Food Hosts are part of what makes the CERES Fair Food distribution system unique. Food Hosts are community minded folk – individuals, businesses or organisations – that provide a safe location for us to drop off your food box and keep it safe until you arrive to collect it. Your most convenient Food Host may be close to your home, place of work, or even on a regular route you travel. Food Hosts will be open for around 2 – 4 hours on the day of your food delivery, usually in the evening, and all orders to a Food Host enjoy free delivery.

The point of all this? Our organic food delivery service is all about reducing food miles, connecting you to the farmers who grow your food and like-minded people in your neighbourhood. We love to introduce new Food Host collection points as demand increases. To stay in the loop and to know when we open new Food Hosts, sign up to our newsletter, or follow us on Facebook / Instagram / Twitter.

Alternatively, if you don’t currently have a convenient Food Host near you, our carbon neutral home delivery service now runs Monday to Friday across most of Melbourne. So convenient! You can order and get a delivery to your door the next day.

Becoming a Food Host

Food Hosts get to be a part of a movement that really makes a difference and challenges the current conventional food system. We are interested in people who are passionate about local, healthy food in their community and supporting the farmers who produce it.  In return we offer reduced cost food boxes (25% off your box) and all the support you will need.

If you’d like more information about being a Food Host, please send us an email! foodhosts@ceresfairfood.org.au
