UMSU WELFARE FOOD BANK
You should never have to go hungry
The Welfare Department’s Food Bank is a service available to all students at the university in need of assistance. Student life is expensive and often, students skip meals to pay for bills and rent. According to Universities Australia, roughly 1 in 5 students regularly go without food, and this is heartbreaking. If you are struggling to afford food, we’re here to help.
How to access the Food Bank?
You can pick up a pack anonymously from the UMSU Information Desk on the Ground Floor of Union House by approaching one of the friendly staff members. Alternatively, please email the Welfare Officers at email@example.com to arrange a time to pick up a pack. You can also pop by the Welfare Office on the 1st floor of Union House and access the Food Bank during office hours.
You don’t need to travel to the Parkville campus as we have ample food packs down at Southbank for VCA & MCM students. Food packs can be picked up at Stop 1, Southbank (Elisabeth Murdoch Building) during opening hours or on request from the UMSU Southank Officer.
We rely on donations to provide uninterrupted and quality service. We accept all sorts of donations ranging from canned food to tea bags and even household items like soap and toothpaste. To make a contribution, please visit the Welfare Office or email the Welfare Officers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
