Ipswich Good Food Group



IGFG is 100% volunteer-run. As a bulk buying group, we are a community that has made the decision to work together towards a fair food system. With this comes an expectation that members will take an active role. 


Volunteering can suit different levels of physical capacity. Volunteering at meetings includes: set-up, recording purchases at the scales, and pack-up. There are also tasks that members can help with from home.


Members are encouraged to add their name to the online volunteer roster (posted monthly) or contact the volunteer co-ordinator at
