Welcome to the Melbourne Food Hub
The Melbourne Food Hub is a visionary collective impact project and joint venture of Sustain: The Australian Food Network and Melbourne Farmers Markets (MFM), which has seed funding from Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.
It’s mission to to create a self-sustaining and replicable model Food Hub where community can meet, learn about, grow, make, eat and source fresh local produce.
The Hub reflects and celebrates intercultural diversity, where all are welcome and included for generations to come.
The Food Hub has been established at Melbourne Innovation Centre’s Wingrove Street site, directly opposite Alphington Train Station. The site itself has been reimagined from a concreted barren scape into the bustling and lively Alphington Farmers Market on Sunday mornings.
Other planned features of the Food Hub include a commercial kitchen designed to divert food waste and support new food start-up businesses, establish community composting facilities, a farmer’s depot, co-working offices and an abundant urban agricultural project.

Melbourne Food Hub respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the Land on which the hub stands, the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to them, their culture and their Elders, past, present and future.
