Real Food Grocer Community PartnersConnecting With Community
Forming long-term relationships allowing for ongoing connection with our community and its needs.
Much more than a grocery delivery service and a product for payment exchange, we investigate the community programs and organisations in our customer’s communities and see how we can help. Our headquarters may be stationary but we have the privilege of delivering to ALL of Melbourne and feel a connection to this larger community.
The relationships we form are mutually beneficial., we want our customers to know that the time we invest in building these relationships is an investment in building a better, more abundant, and more affordable food system for all.
Food forests are as much about community as they are about growing food. Unlike regular community gardens, where each person has their own plot, food forests are a garden created and cared for by the local community as a collaborative activity.
Mums Supporting Families In Need is one of our favourite ever community groups. Running entirely on volunteer power these dynamic people turn peoples unwanted hand-me-downs into important support for families in need.
MSFIN needs support for running costs like the rent of their warehouse. So think about contributing a financial donation – or if you have clothing, prams, cots or other goods you can contribute to the cause get in touch and see how you can make a difference!
Real Food Grocer loves to help out with contributions to the regular BUnnings Sausage sizzles that help MSFIN pay some of their less glamourous bills.
