RUSU: Your Union


RUSU Realfoods

It can be tough to find a healthy and delicious meal in the concrete heart of Melbourne city. That's why it's worth hunting down the Realfoods cafe inside RMIT University's foodcourt. Realfoods is all about serving up real SLOW* fast food using *Seasonal, Local, Organic, and Whole ingredients.

We're open 11am to 4pm, Monday to Friday during higher-ed university semesters only, and can be found at the RMIT University City Campus, 360 Swanston St, food court, Building 8, Level 4.

Us RUSU 'Realfoodies' reckon healthy food should be convenient, affordable, and always taste awesome. Our ingredients may all stem (ahem) from the plant kingdom, but our MENU sure aims to please peeps of all dietary pursuasions - from those with food allergies a mile long, to the most happy hardcore carnavore! Realfoods offers a variety of food and drinks carefully chosen for their great taste, nutritional value and eco-credentials. We source our fresh produce, ready-made items, takeaway packaging and cleaning products through growers, producers and wholesalers that share our values.

Realfoods is a RMIT University Student Union owned and operated social enterpriese and falls within the RUSU Environment Department. The café is overseen by a full-time RUSU staff member, and a team of 65+ wonderful student volunteers who lend a hand each week. Everyone is welcome to dine at Realfoods and we look forward to serving you with a smile soon.
