Volunteer in 2013!

The Wholefoods Collective is currently taking expressions of interest in volunteering in Wholefoods in 2013! Please take a moment to fill in the form.

Wholefoods Volunteers have been essential to the operations and philosophy of Wholefoods since Wholefoods began in 1977. When the Wholefoods community met one of the founders of Wholefoods a number of years ago, he was disappointed that – besides the cook – there were any paid staff at all.

The second aim of the Wholefoods Constitution reads that Collective are: “To encourage voluntary student participation at all levels of operation  of Wholefoods, in an atmosphere of mutual respect and cooperation”.

This year – amidst the dispute with the MSA taking control – volunteering has been effectively abolished – in part – because the One Meal for One Hours Work was dissolved by management.

The MSA believes, after legal advice, that this constitutes an “employment relationship” – the Wholefoods Collective and Friends of Wholefoods disagree. We believe that in one way or another this can be resolved.

Fill in the form with the areas of Wholefoods you’d be interested in being a vollie in!
