Good food –

For good.

Delivering for our community

Welcome to SocialBox

SocialBox is a Not For Profit social enterprise, set up during COVID-19 to support a wide range of people in our local community.

SocialBox provides essential grocery boxes, homemade ready meals and more, with free home delivery. We work with local farmers and suppliers to provide the freshest produce.

For every box ordered we donate 5% to our fund for free groceries for NHS workers – so they can have one less thing to worry about when they finish a long shift.

Who we benefit:

  • The general public with boxes of fresh produce from local independent suppliers
  • Businesses who are facing closure
  • Employees and self-employed workers who have lost income
  • NHS staff with a 20% discount and free grocery boxes
  • 5% of every order placed will go to our NHS staff fund

Boxes

We offer fresh, seasonal Sussex produce alongside store-cupboard essentials: everything in our boxes is carefully selected and packed to bring you the best groceries our vibrant local area can offer. Our box contents varies according to season and price – it’s all from small local producers.

  • To have and share a sense of social purpose during and after COVID-19
  • To provide essential groceries to the vulnerable, shielded and isolated
  • To help and provide for NHS and healthcare workers
