Melbourne Lockdown: Food Co-op & Cafe Updates


Updates from the Food Coop and Cafe:

The FoE Food Co-op and Cafe remains open for click-and-collect online ordering!
Place your order via the website to pick up with minimal faff!

The Food Coop and Cafe is still open for shopping in-store. We operating with necessary physical distancing and hygiene measures in place.

Open daily during the Melbourne lockdown for organic bulk food and grocery shopping, and serving vegan takeaway meals.

Monday-Friday 10-6 / Saturday 10-5 / Sunday 11-4


The grocery and bulk food store will continue allowing customers to refill their own containers, and as always we ask that all customers wash and sanitise their hands before shopping.

Most bulk products remain available and we encourage you to come and shop if you are feeling well. We have implemented some changes to help minimise risk to our shoppers with compulsory hand washing before bulk shopping, washing of scoops after each use and having hand sanitiser available.

Some products will be prepackaged to maintain best hygiene practices.

We would greatly appreciate card payments as we try to reduce cash handling, and will not be able to accept keep cups for the time being.

You can sign up to become an Active Friend member of the Food Coop and Cafe. A monthly donation will support the Food Coop to keep the doors open to provide food for our community, and ensure we can afford wages for key Food Coop staff.
