Friends of the Earth Food Co-op is an ethical organic food store and café created with the community's health and wellbeing in mind. It is a social enterprise of Friends of the Earth Melbourne, a not-for-profit, community-driven environmental organisation that advocates and campaigns for a safe, clean and socially just environment for now and for the future.
Every item they sell has been selected based on its nutritional value, ethics and ecological sustainability. They source products and produce locally as much as possible. They have been plastic bag free for over 40 years; to help cut down packaging and waste, please bring your own jars, bottles, containers and shopping bags. Their products and meals are palm-oil and GMO-free.
The café provides a healthy, organic, vegan and gluten-free menu. Dishes have included sweetcorn and black sesame soup with smoked tofu, pizza, salads and sweet treats.
