Have you heard about Ivanhoe Community Grocers’ school fundraising program?


As a community-focused business, started by me, a local mum. We’ve chosen to operate as a social enterprise. We support kindergartens, preschools and other community groups, and help them with their fundraising. 

We implement a really simple system where the community group is given a specific code that parents, staff and anyone else can use when placing orders. A portion of each purchase is then saved and at the end of each quarter, the group receives this rebate as a donation. We give $3 back for each box that’s purchased, which adds up pretty quickly!

We all buy food and by choosing to buy from ICG you’re getting awesome organic fruit and veg delivered to your doorstep AND supporting your school too!

Contact us now to find out how your local group can get involved and start raising funds now!

You’re also very welcome to call the business owner, Stephanie, directly. She has been raising kids in the area for the last 18 years and is always happy to have a chat and answer any questions.

Our Partners


Ivanhoe Children’s Community Co-op

Co-op has been with us literally from Day 1! They have been huge supporters of our little business and we love them dearly. Our founder, Stephanie’s son went to Co-op many years ago and we love them dearly!

Winston Hills Preschool

WHPS came on board after a number of their parents began getting veggie boxes from us and loved them. Over time we managed to connect and start donating the funds.

Yarralea Children’s Centre

Our newest preschool partner! Thanks for jumping on board! We’re looking forward to getting to know everyone at this lovely not-for-profit community managed centre in Alphington. 


We have officially partnered with Rainforest Rescue! If you haven’t heard of them yet, I’m excited to share this AMAZING organisation with you! They spend their time literally rescuing the rainforest by buying land that becomes available for sale in rainforest areas and stopping it from being developed. They’re working in the Daintree at the moment, amongst other places in Australia. See the link below for full details.

Choosing to operate as a social enterprise means we can help people who are doing great work and directly impact the kind of changes we want to see in the world. Partnering with Rainforest Rescue provides a whole new avenue for awesome impact.
