Volunteer with HWC

red onions

Hepburn Wholefoods is a community group run 100% by volunteers and organised by a small steering committee. This enables us to keep prices as low as possible and source the products that our members want.

There are many ways you can help out if you are a member. Volunteer at the shop so we can open for longer hours, help with purchasing or pick-up of products, get involved with memberships or just help spread the word!

Fresh Food Purchaser

We currently have an opening for the right person to volunteer as our Fresh Food Purchaser. This position will compliment the existing purchaser but with a focus on sourcing fresh fruits and vegetables from our region's local farmers.

  • Build an ongoing relationship with local producers to learn what is growing and what they might be able to supply us with.
  • Co-ordinate delivery (and sometimes pick up) of stock
  • Monitor stock levels of fresh produce in the shop
  • Liase with our treasurer to organise supplier payments
  • Communicate with steering group at monthly meetings

This volunteer position will take a few hours a week (mostly in the summer months) and would suit someone with great communication skills who is able to work independently. Could this be you!? We would love to hear from you - members@hepburnwholefoods.org.au
