Coronavirus

True Food is still open 10-3 every day except Tuesdays and Sundays. 

We are limiting the number of customers in the shop, but we are serving people super fast, so it is unlikely you will have to wait for long. 

If you are unable to come into the shop and are incredibly vulnerable, please use our new Collection Service. Simply send your telephone number and rough shopping list to organics@truefood.coop.

Your personal shopper will call you back, usually the next day, although we are busy, so please bear with us. 

Keep well and smiling!

The global challenges we face of how to feed a growing population has become a hot topic over the past few years. It is now clear that something has to be done to tackle these challenges as our current way of producing food is destroying our planet.
Dried Fruit
I have been reading that during these strange times, people are getting creative in the kitchen. This can only be good! Really, what better way to pass the time than to cook?
