How? Using the Box Divvy ordering platform you join a Hub™ & order online with our group. Join a Box Divvy Food Hub™ in your area (Sydney & Central Coast at the moment).
                 
It's a fresh food & grocery online box sharing system using an App for ordering. It connects farmers and food wholesalers directly with your Food Hub so you can get groceries with prices
30-40% less than online supermarkets. Saving you some serious dough on food.
You have someone in your community, your Hubster, who is passionate about real food.
No fee to join - you can cancel orders when not wanted BEFORE 'Order Creation'.
Two parts to ordering.
1. STARTING ORDER - can take out 3 things. Roughly $20-$25. How much you get depends on how many people in your household.
2. OPT IN to SPLITS. Let's share boxes.
 
If you just want a Fixed Box just take the Starting Order.
What? No Box Divvy Hub in your area?
Maybe someone you know wants to start a Box Divvy Hub. They earn good income & only need 2-3 hours a week. No investment needed. Not a franchise. 
                   Unsupermarket now.

 Why Box Divvy?

The goal: to cut your food bill in half, without compromising on the quality, freshness and variety of food. With minimal effort, minimal packaging and food miles, and still paying farmers and suppliers a fair price for their produce. 

We want the community to own the food system.

Western Sydney Diabetes Alliance

Box Divvy have been a member of the Western Sydney Diabetes Alliance for over 2 years.  The Alliance’s goal is to fight Diabetes Type 2, one of the fast-growing diseases that now affects nearly 1 in 5 Sydney-siders.  Diabetes Type 2 is largely a lifestyle disease, caused by poor diet and lack of exercise. For more information see Western Sydney Diabetes

In order to make a change to people’s consumption habits, we need to tick 3 boxes:

1.    Make fresh food more easily available.  Over the past few decades, many grocery stores have closed, and instead we’re seeing fast food outlets popping up all over Sydney.  Box Divvy Hubs can start anywhere: in people’s garages and carports, in community and neighbourhood centres, and church halls and community gardens.  

2.    Reduce the cost.  Research suggests that if you cut the cost of fruit and vegetables by 35%, consumption will leap by 25%.  We can’t think of a more effective way to get people to eat more fresh and less processed food.

3.    Help turn all this great fresh food into healthy, tasty meals.  Your Hubster and local food bloggers will help you to do this.

ORDERING SYSTEM:

The system is easy. You share boxes of fruit, vegetables and groceries with your Hub members & pay online. 

It’s an opt out system meaning when you don't  want an order you and cancel it. You need a credit or debit card to join with Visa or Mastercard on it. We don't take Amex or Maestro. There is no joining fee.

There are two parts to ordering.

  • Starting Order and

  • Splits (Box Sharing)

 

STARTING ORDER (Must have)

If you don’t wish to login just take Starting Order as is. Typically $20-$25 but each Hub is different.

Starting Order 8-10 items. You can take up to 3 things out. Amount you get is based on your household size. What you get based on your doing a weekly WISH LIST VOTE.

SPLITS (box sharing) OPT IN. Suggest 1 box to share or join others suggestions.

  • Fruit Veg comes weekly - You work together as a group divvy the box online, then when box sold goes into your order.

  • Bread comes weekly min order for whole group $30.

  • Groceries – ORDER THIS WEEK GET NEXT WEEK but you get what you want, freshly roasted nuts on order, packed dried fruit etc on order. In order to make this fresh ORDER this week and Delivery Following week. This way we have have no food waste.

How will I know what I'm spending?

You have the cost of the Starting Order typically between $20-$25 plus the Splits you have joined and that get sold. So under MY ORDER you will see if ALL the Splits get sold this is the (Max) you will spend. When orders processed a copy of your order goes into MY ORDERS under View.

Want a whole box?

If you wish a whole box and say it says 80 apples in a box then when you select how many you put in range Min 75 Max 85. This way you don’t get ‘bumped’ out of the box meaning others joining in that split.

 

When are cards charged?

At cutoff 9pm. Orders go to farmers they are paid. They pick and sort the following day. The day after ie two days after cutoff boxes arrive at Hub. Hubster packs your bag (you drop off bags and containers). Then pick up from them. Some Hubsters do home delivery if nearby for $7 You’d need to ask Hubster.
