Get involved

There are lots of ways you can get involved with the Food Co-op shop.

Join the Food Co-op as a member. As a co-operative the Food Co-op is owned and run by members. As a member, each hour you volunteer gives you a 15% discount for two weeks at the Food Co-op. We are always looking for volunteers to help us out with things in the shop (such as putting away orders, cleaning and tidying, lunch preparation and service). The Management Collective (MC) is made up of members and meets once a month to oversee the Food Co-op. All members are welcome.

The Cooperative provides a supportive work experience opportunity that enables students to develop skills and confidence to seek paid employment to support them through their studies. They can gain customer service skills, a variety of retail skills including stock ordering, knowledge of food safety and hygiene, and so on.

Check out the pages in the Get Involved section for more information about volunteering, becoming a member or coming along to a MC meeting. Or email:
