OUR COMMUNITY

"Alone, we can do so little; together, we can do so much.” Helen Keller.

OUR PARTNERS

Our Farmers & Suppliers

We are geared to support Durban. Our fresh produce is sourced from local farmers and fresh produce exchanges in the KZN area. Our add-on products are supplied by local Durban artisan producers through our partnership with Founder Foods. To apply to be a supplier please contact Founder Foods.

Our Collection Points

Our collection point partners are establishments across Durban that Freshbox customers would normally frequent. They include coffee shops, restaurants, schools, office buildings and residential estates that have a secure, indoor area. See our list of collection points or apply to become a collection point.

Donors & Sponsors

FreshBox requires approximately 200 subscribers before it is completely financially self-sufficient. We can get there quicker through donations and sponsorships to help us market. Contact us for more info on how you can help.

You can also donate directly towards the purchase of additional food for donation. Donate now.

Schools

What if you could collect your weekly fruit and vegetables from your child’s school AND feed children in need? Now you can! We are looking for Schools in our drop off areas to start as collection points!

Schools choose their own charity and compete to see who donates the most healthy food to at-risk children. Apply to be a participating school.

Our Beneficiaries

At the heart of everything we do is our mission to ensure every child has the right to nutrition. Freshbox has works with a number of beneficiaries, allowing each customer to nominate the specific beneficiary they would like to receive the donation portion of the FreshBox subscription. See more about our beneficiaries.
