Food Distribution Business

Melbourne Food Hub –

Grow / Source / Eat Box 

 

Building on the success of last years 7-week pilot, we are currently working with local, sustainable farmers to bring you a rolling subscription – that means fresh, seasonal vegetables available for pick up or delivery each week. 

In the meantime, we have a 5 week subscription to tide you over (Feb 13- Mar 12), while the produce on our Urban Farm is still growing. Sign up here.

To stay up to date with what we’re growing on the Urban Farm, and how you can get your hands on it – subscribe below, and follow our Instagram and Facebook for one-off produce bags. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Previous Food Distribution Business Activities

 The Food Distribution Business aims to connect buyers and institutions to fresh, seasonal and local produce that has been grown sustainably. Institutions include daycare centres, schools, aged care facilities and hospitals.

In 2019, we launched multiple pilot projects, supporting small-scale urban and peri-urban farmers, as well as the utilising produce from our own Urban Farm

Our work with Reservoir High School, delivered a weekly veggie box fresh from the Alphington Farmers Market with produce that is used by the school canteen for healthy, local and fresh lunches.

Melbourne Farmers Market and the University of Melbourne Staff in partnership with Thriving Food Farms and other regular stallholders who attend the weekly Wednesday Uni Melb Farmers Market also piloted an on-campus veggie box scheme to great success. 

We also trialled a 7-week, collection subscription model at the Melbourne Food Hub with Spoke and Spade, Kingfisher Citrus, Sugarloaf, and What A Spud.

These projects have been extremely popular and we look forward to expanding them this year.
