Crunchboxes are boxes full of yummy, healthy treats available to purchase from select cafés in Boroondara during school holidays. We want to make it easy and fun for families to choose healthy options when they are out and about in our City.
Crunchboxes include food options that are healthy and nutritious, and meet the requirements for ‘green’ or ‘amber’ items on the Victorian Government’s FoodChecker tool.
During the January 2019 school holidays, look out for Crunchboxes in the following locations:
- Ignite Café, 340 Camberwell Road, Camberwell
- Ashburton Pool and Recreation Centre, 8 Warner Avenue, Ashburton
- Boroondara Sports Complex, 271c Belmore Road, Balwyn
- Hawthorn Aquatic and Leisure Centre, 1 Grace Street, Hawthorn
- Kew Recreation Centre, 383 High St, Kew
