The SSU Free Feeds program aims to reduce food insecurity and provide necessary and healthy sustenance options for Swinburne students experiencing financial hardship resulting from Covid-19.

For current Swinburne students experiencing financial hardship or food insecurity, the Program will make available one meal-pack per week, compromising at least five (5) pre-cooked and nutritious meals.

To access the program, students will need to register, and receive a confirmation email confirming availability of their pack at the location and on the date and time selected.

Unfortunately, given our organization’s finite resources, we must place some limitations surrounding student access of the program, as follows:

  • Student participants can access the program a maximum of once per week
  • During the weekly visit, participating students will receive one Free Feeds pack

To be eligible to access the Free Feed participants must:

  • be current students of Swinburne University
  • be experiencing financial hardship and/or food insecurity
  • be currently unable to access other avenues of financial or food support (i.e. Youth Support)
