The Food You Choose is a Melbourne-based charity bringing delicious, sustainable food to community groups and non profits in Australia.
More than 1,000,000 serves of climate-damaging food are served on university campuses in Melbourne every year. To remedy the glaring lack of sustainable food options for student BBQs and curtail the damage to the environment, we began as a volunteer driven program in August 2017.
Within a short time, we have grown in leaps and bounds to become a registered charity with the goal of providing 100,000 serves of delicious, sustainable food this year!
Here’s how it works
We source great tasting, sustainable food
We sell it to you at-cost
We deliver it to your event free of charge
Food comes first
Despite the fact that food production has a massive impact on the planet, the food system is often overlooked when we talk about sustainability. Three times a day, every day, we all make a choice about what kind of world we want to create. But some choices are easier than others.
That’s why we’re on a mission to make sure that the easiest choice is also the one that’s best for the planet - and our tastebuds!
We believe that community groups and small non-profits are uniquely placed to help combat climate change. Just by changing the food served at their events, non-profits can save millions of litres of water each year, thousands of square kilometres of land and countless quantities of greenhouse gas emissions.
Small enough to change the food they serve without the red tape but big enough to make an impact, we’re proud to support community groups as they help create a better world.
A different kind of charity
Unlike many non-profits, The Food You Choose doesn’t work to educate or raise awareness about the issues - we know everybody cares about climate change. Instead, what we offer are practical solutions to practical problems.
By providing high quality, sustainable food products at-cost with first-class delivery and logistics, we’ve helped over 40 community groups and non-profits make their food events more sustainable.
