WHO ARE WE? 

The Healthful Pantry started when a few families decided to source organic and natural food products in bulk from one organic supplier and divide it amongst themselves in Newcastle. We found that this not only saved money but provided much fresher organic & natural food and products, plus we reallyenjoyed the experience of working together repackaging key items. Since then, we have gradually grown into a large organic and natural food buying ‘group’ sourcing items from multiple suppliers. We have developed a large and loyal community of members who now benefit from this same bulk group ordering of organic and natural products.

HOW IT WORKS

We order in from our suppliers every four weeks. We work with our producers and suppliers to increase the range and size of products we provide on a regular basis and offer a range of size options on many products and are happy to try and source other items and sizes for you by request. Ordering usually closes about two weeks before the arrival of our goods. You have the option to collect your order or we can deliver it to you, from an additional $10 depending on the quantity of goods you order.  Orders must be paid for prior to delivery.

JOIN THE HEALTHFUL COMMUNITY

We want to help you and your family live a ‘Healthful Life’ by learning how to get the most out of the food and products you purchase from us. We offer educational sessions and cooking classes on a regular basis and have many group members with qualifications and expertise in a range of areas, who run events at The Healthful Pantry to help you learn more!

We encourage anyone who can, to participate in our repackaging of items and order picking. Everyone is welcome to join us on packing days – the bonus is you get to meet like-minded people whom you will undoubtedly learn from and be inspired by.  This is a completely non-obligatory part of our group – we understand that not all people can help as we all live busy lives. Those who assist will receive a discount off their order.

Skin Loving made Easy
Time for a pop quiz. 
Ready?

OK, let’s go!

Name 3 organs of your body.

What did you come up with? 
If you immediately thought to answer with the heart, lungs, or liver, then yes, a gold star for you. (Bonus points for the more creative among you who said the spleen, stomach or kidneys..) But what about SKIN? Did you think to say ‘skin’? No*? No worries, you’re not alone. Even though the skin gets the prize for being the largest organ in the body (around 10kg worth on an adult, followed by the liver at around 1.5kg) it’s perhaps not the most readily associated with ‘Team organ’. So we reckon it’s high time to give skin the love, attention and kudos it deserves. Afterall, our skin is literally responsible for holding us together – otherwise we’d just be a bag of bones. Plus, skin provides us with an airtight, watertight and flexible barrier between the outside world and our insides – again, kinda essential for getting around. 
Skin also houses our sense of touch, helps regulate body temperature and produces vitamins – hurrah for skin! 
But wait, there’s more…

When we say elimination, you think poohs and wees, right? Sure, you’d be correct, but skin is also an organ of elimination, helping us rid toxins from the body.

Tough jobs, huh? 
And what thanks do we give skin? 
Not much. 
Instead we complain about it, scratch it, burn it, shave it and pluck it, and sometimes even leave it out in the elements to fend for itself. Worse still, and often quite unintentionally, we force the skin to absorb substances that couldn’t possibly be healthy. 
The thing is, skin is porous. It absorbs everything we put on it. Yup, every substance put on the skin winds up in the bloodstream. As such, it makes sense to know the ingredients of the skincare products such as sunscreens, moisturisers and creams we buy. 
Put simply, what you put ON your body is just as important as what you put IN. 
Big usually means scary
Big skincare brands that put profit over love and common sense generally cram a scary sounding blend of chemicals into a tube and sell it. We’re talking parabens, sodium lauryl sulphate, coal tar and petroleu
