The Green Action Food Co-op is an organisation within Leeds University Union run entirely by volunteers to provide cost price ethical food to its members.
They stock lots of snacks like flapjacks, sesame snaps, chocolate, liquorice; a range of fair trade/organic teas and coffees; pasta, jars (of peanut butter, pesto etc), soya milk and rice milk, fruit juices, yogurt, tofu, margarine and a wide range of other essentials. They also have lots of jars full of loose grains, dried beans, dried fruit, nuts, lentils, oats, muesli and different flours which we can weigh out to the amount you want.
They are collectively run by their members, who each pay a nominal fee of £2 a year and can participate in all the aspects of day-to-day running. This doesn’t mean you have to volunteer your time or get involved in anything, but they would encourage you to do so as it’s enjoyable, productive and you get to meet new people.
