A huge congratulations to The Community Grocer, who do excellent work providing affordable fruit and veg for long-income households in Carlton and other suburbs of Melbourne.

Nutrition students at Monash University just wrapped up this year's impact evaluation. 

  • The Community Grocer is serving an increasingly diverse population - 29 different nationalities, up from only 22 last year. 
  • On average, their produce is 60% cheaper than surrounding supermarkets and greengrocers. 
  • 75% of their customers reported that they're able to buy more fruit and veg because of Community Grocer markets.
  • They're promoting healthy connected communities where 83% of shoppers feel more connected to the community!

Congratulations to the Community Grocer! What fantastic work for our community.
