Hot Lunches Are On Four Days Per Week

(Sometimes with Live Music)

Hot lunches are served at the Food Co-op Shop & Cafe four days per week, Tuesdays through Fridays, from 12p-2p. Hot lunches are $6 for the general public and $5 for members and students. A limited quantity is cooked, so come in early to ensure you get a feed. The past few weeks have brought out a jam session during Friday’s lunch, and last week, we had live music during Thursday’s lunch as well. You never know what you may encounter when you come to the Food Co-op Shop & Cafe for lunch.

We are always looking for volunteers to help with food preparation, service, and clean up, so email us if you are keen and get a free feed for your efforts. We are specifically looking for volunteers to help clean up from 2pm-3pm Tuesday-Friday.

Get Involved…

There are always heaps of projects around the Food Co-op Shop for which you can volunteer. Email us to find out more, and remember volunteering one hour per month entitles you to a month long 20% discount. We are currently looking for:

  • Someone to help with clean up after our weekday lunches between 2-3pm Tuesday through Friday
