What if I’m staying in Broome for a little while, can I still order?
We have introduced the casual membership which costs only $20 and is valid for 3 months. We would still ask you to participate and volunteer.

Yes, you can use your debit or credit card to make a payment. After the checkout, simply select the ‘Pay with a card’ option.
Do I have to volunteer?

How can I volunteer?
You can help with the monthly packing of products and at the pick-up.
Packing is on the Friday before the pick-up and takes about 1.5 hours. It is light work in a great atmosphere.
Pick-up is 1 hour long, on the first Saturday of each month. Please sign up here.

How does organisational membership work?
Organisations are encouraged to use the Broome Food Co-op to purchase ethical paper products (toilet paper and paper towel). They can also order dry goods through the Co-op. Membership is slightly more expensive as we recognise that organisations cannot volunteer. Non-profit organisations will however benefit from donations of food and goods by the co-op to them from time to time.
How do I renew my membership?
Sign in to your account as usual, then go to the signup page and click on the button to purchase the membership.
You can check your membership status anytime if you are logged in: go to the ‘My Account’ page and click on ‘Membership profile’.
How do I upgrade my casual membership to annual?
The membership upgrade works very similarly to how the membership renewal process works: simply log in to your account, purchase the membership and your account will be upgraded.
