Wholefoods is a proudly student-run, not-for-profit restaurant & cafe located on campus at Monash University, Clayton. Established in 1977, we came about with the aim of providing affordable and healthy vegan and vegetarian food to students. Now, more than 45 years on, we welcome hundreds of members of the Monash community into our space every day to enjoy our famous homemade curries, dahl, lasagne, baked goods, fairtrade coffee, and more!
Throughout the university semester, our space is also home to regular movie screenings, talks, meetups, workshops, art shows, parties, trivia nights, and other events. We provide catering to groups all across the university and hire out our space to different clubs and societies for events such as OGMs, cookups, and conversation clubs. From our humble beginnings, we have grown into one of the oldest and most well-loved institutions on campus.
Wholefoods is run almost exclusively by volunteers; and without them we wouldn't be here today. Serving food, running events, and making strategic decisions are all ways to get involved as a volunteer at Wholefoods. Our decision-making body, the Wholefoods Collective, is open to anyone, and functions on a consensus-driven basis - which means that your voice will always count! This allows us to come together and share our ideas, encourage direct participation in our democracy, and create an ethos that genuinely and deeply reflects the interests and values of our community.
And speaking of community - what would Wholefoods be without one? We are proudly home to the most vibrant and welcoming community on campus! If you're looking to make friends, have a chat, or just get involved in student life - Wholefoods is the place to be!
So join us up on Level 1 of the campus centre for the best food, drink, and vibes on campus!
