Located currently in
Box Divvy is unique group of food coops that are changing the way we think about shopping. With this community there is no more looking for a parking spot, no more trolleys, no more trying to figure out what to buy that's good for you to eat.
Box Divvy only offer nutritionally high foods both sprayfree and conventionally grown. No high energy junk foods. If you want to know more then read How We Work With Our Growers.
At any given time around 50% (normal growing conditions) or so is from the Sydney Food Basin seasonally and sprayfree. When we go interstate assume it is conventionally grown as we don't personally know the farmers. Any Backyard Grower is also sprayfree. If you eat only local then there is no variety.
So, join our community run food coops using an easy, smart App to order online box sharing with other members.
You get more of what you want at prices on fruit and veg are up to 30% less than online supermarkets over the seasonal cycle.
We are all about community.
Box Divvy Price comparisons are with online supermarkets and based on a basket for that week. See various Box Divvy Facebook pages for these comparisons. Box Divvy comparisons include the Hubster fee, which is a percentage of what you purchase. Not all items will be cheaper than online supermarkets on a given week and it depends on where supply is coming from. The Hubster fee is paid to the Hubster for running the Hub and for packing the fruit, veg and pre-packaged groceries.

Box Divvy is not for everyone
Whilst you choose which "Splits" (box shares) to join you will have a variability in the amount , more
often you get more but keep in mind this is box sharing. So if, for example, there are 15 portions in a box this means the box is divided by 15 portions.
If you want 1 tomato and 2 cucumber then maybe box sharing is not for you. In order to get the most out of Box Divvy you need to be flexible, able to go with the flow and keen to embrace the core values of our food communities. Pay our farmers fairly, provide your bags and tubs to reduce packaging, you'll get heaps out of joining on your Hub Facebook page: updates on market weekly trends, farmer stories, recipe sharing and community activities around food are shared on your Hub's Facebook page.
Every Hubster has a Facebook page but you can view the main Box Divvy Facebook Or
check out Box Divvy Instagram which has a great summary of all things Box Divvy.

Want to see Products & Prices?
When you join you will see these when orders open in the Marketplace.
Ordering is easy! Just different. Think box sharing as a group.
As soon as the order is published, you can log in and start ordering. The order cycle is 3 days, so there’s plenty of time. After you log in, go to Marketplace: that’s where the action is.
A Split is sharing a box - "Let's Split" a box. Divvy it between us.
You choose how many of an item you want ie 3 fuji apples. The whole box might be 28 apples that need to be shared with the group. So 28 apples must be sold to get the box. If someone wants more apples after the box is sold they can get them.
You suggest a SPLIT or Join a SPLIT another member has suggested.
Once you’ve done an order, you’ll see how easy it is.
There's no food waste here. You get more of what you want as all you have to do as a group is to purchase the minimum required for that item. Then if someone wants more they get it. We also have a heap of end of week recipes to help families manage what is left over before next Hub day. Your Hubster will share these with you or head over to Veggie Drawer Rescue on Facebook.
Are there any fees?
In your order you will see a Hubster fee on fruit and veg is 15% this is what they are paid by their members to run the Hub and pack your orders.
If payment declines twice on the third try a $5 fee is charged for reprocessing.
To join: First find a Hub
A Box Divvy Food Hub is located at your neighbour’s house, local community centre/group, a fundraiser for scouts or school. You order online and pickup. Home Delivery? Ask the Hubster who runs the Hub.
To speak with a Hubster in your area - Go To Facebook and search under Box Divvy (suburb) and select the Hub in your area. You can Facebook message the Hubster.
* Members order together with their Hub members online.
* You work as a group sharing boxes of produce.
The ordering App is contained in our website for security. It's easy and smart to use.
WHEN ARE CARDS CHARGED?
At Order Cut-off 9pm cards are charged. Orders go in and a day later turn up at the Hub for your Hubster (person who runs the Hub) to pack your order. You pick up from them.
HOME DELIVERY and how this works - if offered.
A Hubster might offer home delivery but you must ask them. Simply filling out the Home Delivery Address does not mean you get home delivery.
You must pay before Hub day. You'll have registered a CREDIT or DEBIT Visa or Mastercard on sign up.
Your card will be Validated with a random amount between 3 and 6 cents.
Should your card decline, first attempt, you get an automated email at 9pm cutoff alert saying it will recharge midday following day.
An automated second attempt, midday the following day (day before delivery). Should it decline a second time Box Divvy will 'manually' chase up payment.
You will be charged a $5 recharge fee. The processing will happen 5pm (day before delivery).
* You will not get an order unless paid for and if you have an order it is expected you will pay for it BEFORE HUB DAY.
So, how do I cut my food bill?
On average you will save up to 30% on your fruit and veg compared to online supermarket pricing. This is based on an overall basket not individual items. There may be exceptions when the market is volatile due to wea
When do I put in Credit/Debit card?
Usually you do this at registration and your information stays with Eway Payment Gateway.
You need a Debit or Credit card (Mastercard or Visa only). A Debit Card needs a Visa or Mastercard logo on it and you should be able to get from the bank easily.
What if I can't find a Hub?
If there is no Hub the Registration Form will say,
No Hub has opened up in your area, but please register your interest so we can keep you posted!
We will contact you when a Hub is available.
