Thoughtful Foods has a vegie box setup which runs once a week on Thursdays. Members place orders by 5pm on Tuesday on the week of their order. The money is pooled to buy a tasty selection of organic fruit and vegetables at wholesale prices. These are delivered to the coop on Thursday morning, where they are distributed into boxes by volunteers.
All of our fruit and vegies are organic, and are sourced as locally as possible. Boxes include a mix of seasonal produce, but if there's anything you particularly dislike, we have a swap-box where you can exchange it for something else.
All Thoughtful Foods members can order boxes. If you're not a member, joining is easy and anyone can do it.
To make an order:
You can order mixed boxes of fruit and vegetables for $20, $40 or $60. If you'd like a box of only fruit or vegetables, these are only available in $10 or $20 sizes. Contents of any boxes remaining at 6pm on Thursday will be given away to a good cause or needy students.
To get a sense of what the boxes are like, the $10 boxes tend to be around 3kg and the $60 boxes around 18kg. This will vary a lot from week to week and manual distribution by volunteers is a thoroughly imprecise science. However, the statisticians amongst us are happy to guarantee that over time any imbalances will even out. The diversity of produce will generally be higher in larger boxes due to problems with divisibility, but we work hard to ensure that anything missing is made up with other stuff.
