Mari Feeds


Mari Feeds is your local meal box supporting local people and business, with recipes sourced from our community. This project made possible by a VicHealth Reimagining Health Grant and delivered in partnership with Central West Shopping Centre.

Each box contains ingredients and instructions for three recipes sourced by local community members (standard and vegetarian options available) and are designed to serve 4-5 people.

 With delivery every Tuesday, we’ve got your mid-week family meals sorted. Only a limited number of boxes are available each week, so get in quick to order yours.
