RUN A BOX DIVVY FOOD HUB
We invite you to join our food community, Run a Food Hub and be your own boss.
Become a Food Warrior for your neighbourhood. Start a Food Hub and earn income. Seasonally around 70-80%, especially the greens, are local and Sprayfree. All Backyard Growers are Sprayfree. We know our local growers, and by local they are within 200km of Sydney.
Box Divvy are food coops with a difference. No market runs, collecting cash, working out how to divide the produce. Use a Smart App to order together and get more of what you want.
Running you own small business can be scary so we've made it fun, rewarding and easy to do.
We want you to be successfully running a micro business that will change the way the food system currently works. You are given a Hub management tool (the Box Divvy App), a Hubster Coach, all the marketing materials you need, training and ongoing support. There's no investment in starting a Box Divvy Food Hub.
Box Divvy is a Passion Project but you do earn some income from running a Hub™ providing your neighbours with fresh produce and groceries up to 40% less than supermarkets. There's no storage, no long distribution channels, no food waste, and reduced carbon footprint.
Box Divvy Hubsters and members get to know their farming families and backyard growers through you. We're now 5,500 families working together changing the food system by supporting local farmers, backyard growers including beekeepers, Australian farmers and grocery wholesalers.
