Sweet bakery treats made even sweeter by the charity Worthy Cause’s mission to help those vulnerable in our community.

Based in Melbourne, the charity Worthy Cause founded by Rick Cohen has been rivalling the best bakeries in the city with their delicious cookie range. What’s more, each purchase goes towards helping vulnerable people in our society build a better life, so these irresistible cookies come guilt free. 

Worthy Cause not only raises funds for important causes through the sale of food items— they also directly impact lives by employing vulnerable people. These people include those with sickness, disability, misfortune, and more, who have not been able to find long-term employment. Worthy Cause continues to support their employees up until they are comfortable and able to find employment elsewhere. 

“Worthy Cause is determined to give as many people as possible the chance to better their lives. Employees receive a stable income, mentorship, soft-skills training and support in an inclusive and safe environment,” says founder Rick Cohen. “Every person we help deserves the respect and opportunity to work for a better life, and through purchasing our cookies, Australians can help them get one step closer to achieving that.” 

The Cookies

Worthy Cause’s cookies come in packs of two, packed carefully in heat-sealed compostable and recyclable bags for maximum freshness, whether to save for the morning with a coffee or bring with you on the go during the day. Worthy Cause cookies can be found made to order via their website, retail partners, and market stalls. Want a repeat?
