Welcome to Thoughtful Foods! We are open with our Semester Hours. , though we are still in the process of finalising them with vollie availability. If you are interested in co-ordinating or volunteering with us, check out our volunteers page. Our organic, seasonal fruit and veg boxes are available by order on Thursdays along with our fresh organic bread.
In the interests of health, we've installed hand sanitiser dispensers - there's one just next to the chocolate, on your left as you walk in. It would be great it you could remember to use it every time you come to the co-op (and after you touch anything that might spread germs).
Shopping at Thoughtful Foods is different to shopping at other stores. Instead of buying prepackaged goods, you decide how much you need and weigh and price the item yourself. If ever you are in the shop and not sure what to do, the friendly co-ordinator behind the till will be more than happy to show you how things work and answer any questions.
For those among you who like to be prepared for life's unknowns, here is a step by step guide to shopping with us:
Be a Bee Vollie: Big thank you to our cleaning bee helpers!
Huge big thank yous to everyone who came to the cleaning bee on Saturday to make the co-op all pretty and shiny! We cleaned shelves, the windows, refilled stock, reorganised the counter areas and some of the stock, deep cleaned the container lids, scrubbed the walls and even got the sticky tape build up off some of the shelving between cups of tea, veggie curry for lunch and a bunch of great conversation. Emily, Bernhart, Marian, Ryan, Else and John you are all amazing you and I'm sure others will agree the co-op looks so much better for all your hard work.
Thoughtful Foods is located in a space most people wouldn't come across in their day to day activities (unless their activities involve trying to break into the back of the roundhouse for a late night concert!). We have a couple of signs and posters, but generally we depend on the word of mouth of our good members let others know we're here and to help us grow.
In 2011 our turnover of both shop items and veggie boxes has been much smaller than previous years, and that has coincided with less volunteers around the co-op. In 2012 we are aiming to boost our membership and turnover to ensure Thoughtful Foods stays viable, and we've put together a few suggestions that you can use to help us grow…
