Relocation Petition - We need a new home!

Thoughtful Foods will need to vacate its current it's shop space due to redevelopment works on Campus & we need your help to secure a new one.

Dear Prof. Jacobs

 Thoughtful Foods food co-operative is a unique & valuable part of the UNSW community, providing ethical food choices & extensive opportunity for student engagement & development.

 So that Thoughtful Foods can continue to provide these services, I ask that UNSW provides a cost free, accessible shop space on campus to operate from.

    Thoughtful foods is a very important part of life as a student on campus as it offers organic, fair trade and vegan food option at affordable prices. As well as volunteering opportunities and to be part of a community! I love Thoughtful and the fresh fruit and vegetables it provides! Would hate to see it go!

    This is one of the ethical last bastions of uni life left! It is so good to see this co-op still running and it would be a loss to the community and the university.

    Love the veggie boxes from Thoughtful Foods and hope that they are given a new location to keep up the good work.

    I think Thoughtful Foods should be given a more prominent location.

    I would really like this service to stay open. There are not other organic veggie co-ops that I know of in this area!

    Thoughtful Foods has been a unique cooperative that definitely adds value to campus life, providing healthy alternatives for food but also raising awareness of ethical issues about these.

    When I first studied here in the 70s there was a food co-op, so it really is a part of the tradition that UNSW offers.

    A place of higher learning should be encouraging enterprises such as Thoughtful Foods, which promotes sustainable, eco-friendly food, essential for the long-term good health of staff and students, not to mention the future of this planet!

    Thoughtful Foods offers students and the community food choices at a most affordable price. Many of us compromise work to attend university and feel privileged to do so, however it adds to the stress of university workloads at home. The affordable, high quality foods that Thoughtful Foods provide assists in the community maintaining health and vitality to attend university, and it also assists to manage the financial stress due to the high cost of Sydney living.

    I have found the co-op to be a very welcoming and friendly meeting place, quite a retreat within the busy lives of students. When I stop in I have sincere conversations and feel more connected to the university. As a part time student, single mother who values real nutrition, and is struggling to stay at university simply due to finances, I implore the university to continue supporting this highly valued co-op.
