Film Night - as 20th Anniversary celebrations continue

Film, Friends and Festivities during Community Foods 20th Anniversary


Community  Foods continues its 20th Anniversary celebrations with a Film and Friends night at Wharf One Café on Saturday  24 June.

The feature film is SEED: The Untold Story, which follows passionate seed keepers protecting the planet’s 12,000 year-old food legacy. In the last century, 94% of our seed varieties have disappeared. As biotech chemical companies control the majority of our seeds, others such as farmers, scientists, lawyers, and indigenous seed keepers fight an uphill battle to defend the future of our food source.

The film night is a thank you to all customers, suppliers and volunteers who have kept the Co-Op going since its inception at Rustys Markets in 1997, although there a charge for the screening of $10 for volunteers and concession card holders $15 for others.

The evening kicks off with drinks and nibbles at 6pm. The main feature starts at 7.30pm with tickets available on, Community Foods or on the night. A big thanks to Brett and Brynn at End Credits for help with the logistics.

Tricia Gates, a long-standing customer since the late 1990s says the Co-Op deserves to celebrate its longevity.

“Everyone involved over the years, since the Rusty Days to today, deserves a huge high five. Volunteers have kept our food co-op open and our customers have kept it viable.”

The Co-op is inviting anyone who has had anything to do with the shop over the years to come and join the fun. There will be birthday cakes – all made using Co-Op ingredients – on the night, to go with the food and drinks that can be purchased from Wharf One Café.
