Active members are the backbone of True Food, because without them, we could not exist. Although casual shoppers are always welcome, True Food's customers are encouraged to become members, taking an active role in keeping our organisation going for the benefit of the whole community. There are many ways to help out and we only ask for three hours per calendar month to qualify for great shop discounts.
