Are you new to getting a veg box delivery?

Start with getting to know exactly what is in your FeedBox and then how to go about using up every part it. Still want more ideas? We’re here for you Feedboxers!

But first, you might have heard of our FoodCycle program? Just like the FeedBox it’s an important part our closed loop model of sustainably converting food waste into food. Food scraps to compost, compost to soil, soil to farm, farming to food, food to our bellies. Anything left over? Well that goes back to the compost to begin again — zero waste at every point!

While the vegetable box delivers fresh produce to locals, FoodCycle collects from the local community. A zero waste solution that collects your food waste weekly, turning it into compost, which is then used on our local urban farm. The pilot program began in Newcastle, August 2019 and while Covid-19 slowed things down a smidge last year, we are now up and well and truly running! Collecting from local cafes, restaurants, schools, households, we’re are also asking those big questions – where is your food waste going? If you are keen to be involved, you can find your nearest FoodCycle bin here or simply give us a call.
