About Us

Welcome to the SOAS Food Co-op website!

The Food Co-op is a not-for-profit, student run store stocking organic and ethically sourced food. We hope to become not just a wonderful source of low-price options, but a hub of information on all manner of topics including organic food, awareness of where our food comes from, and links to our favourite recipes for lovely home-style organic cooking.

When are we open?
Currently, from 11am – 4pm every Tuesday and Wednesday (except for university holidays)
With your support, we are hoping to expand opening hours to other days of the week!

IMG_2611Who are we?
A group of passionate people (not only students!) who care deeply about community development, social justice, and enjoying good food! Co-op management and volunteering is constantly evolving but we will do our best to feature many of those involved.

What products do we carry?
The list is updated on a weekly basis and will be posted here, so keep us bookmarked! We also take personal orders and requests, so please see the “Our Stock and Ordering” tab for more information.

What do we believe?
In a recent meeting we decided on our core principles:

– Sustainable consumption, striving for zero waste

– Directly democratic and inclusive community

– Promoting inner health and well-being

– Ethical sourcing, justice for global workers

– Non-profit alternative commercial markets
