A community owned-and-run bulk grocery store and cafe, events venue and community hub in central Canberra.

The Food Co-op community offers our sincere acknowledgement of original and ongoing sovereignty to the Traditional Owners of the lands known-as Canberra and its surrounds, the Ngunnawal/Ngunawal, Ngambri, and Ngarigo peoples, in particular to elders past, present and emerging. We acknowledge the rich sovereign traditions of land management, and food propagation and harvesting that have been practised on these lands, and that sustained people in vitality for millennia.

We deeply value the land that we operate on, and importantly the land that we source our food from. Our commitment to source products that support the regeneration of land that has been harmed by colonial land practices is one way that we practice this acknowledgement. We are also committed to developing a First Nations Custodians Solidarity Action Plan with the involvement of First Nations people of the Canberra region to help further the needs and aspirations of First Nations communities in Food Co-op operations.

We invite response and/or feedback from First Nations people on all and any of this, and Food Co-op operations more generally.

Success! You're on the list.
