About Thoughtful Foods

Thoughtful Foods is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit food cooperative which is owned, managed and run according to the wishes of its members. We organise in a non-hierarchical, participatory manner using consensus decision-making processes.

Our aim is to provide cheap, minimally-packaged and ethically-produced wholefoods and household products to UNSW students, staff and the local community. We supply ethically, socially and environmentally sound products.

The beauty of Thoughtful Foods is that the more involved you are, the cheaper the goods are. While you don’t have to be a member of Thoughtful Foods to shop there, members get a 10% discount on shop items. Members also have the chance to volunteer, leading to a 30% discount. For more information, see our website.
