These are testing times for all Australians, especially for the most vulnerable in our communities.
Which is why Woolworths have created the Basics Box, to help provide essential products to customers who are currently unable to visit their stores – the elderly, people with a disability, those with compromised immunity and people in mandatory isolation. To make sure all Woolworths Basics Boxes make their way to people who need them most, you’ll need to be able to show that you fall into one of these groups to order one. Woolworths will not be profiting from providing this service.
What is the Woolworths Basics Box?
It’s just that, the basics, and costs $80 including delivery.
It’s not perfect – it doesn’t include everything and is likely to be different to what you’d normally buy. You’re also not able to choose, switch or select the products you’ll receive.
The list below is an example of what may be included in your Woolworths Basics Box. While some products will vary due to stock availability, Woolworths will always aim to provide a similar range of products. Unfortunately they are currently unable to cater for specific dietary requirements.
A limit of 2 boxes per customer, per fortnight applies.

- Soap (or other hygiene products)
