A crowd-funding campaign hasn't been enough to save a popular vegan eatery at Burleigh Waters.
Feed The Earthlings' owners made the announcement over Facebook on Wednesday they would be shutting down for good on November 18, citing a number of factors including health reasons.
"We appreciate everyone’s support through our rollercoaster journey and we sincerely mean it when we say the incredible vegan community is the reason we have pushed through this far," the statement read.
"We could never put into words how much we appreciate the kindness, compassion, selflessness and unwavering support we’ve received over the past few years and will never forget it."
It's the last of their three Gold Coast stores, with the community helping to raise just over $4000 to keep the business afloat a few months ago, but the efforts were in vain.
