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, comprising five pre-cooked and healthy take-away meal options, plus a goody-box of other packaged foods and self-care items for the Croydon orders.

Students are able to choose either full a vegetarian meal pack, or a combo meat & vegetarian pack. All meat is supplied by a halal butchers.

To access the program, students will need to register for a specific day, and receive confirmation of availability on the date selected.

Unfortunately, given SSU’s finite resources to both cook, distribute and fund these meals, we must place some limitations surrounding student access of the program, as follows:

  • The Free Feed program will support a maximum of 30 student participants per day
  • Student participants can access the program a maximum of once per week
  • During the weekly visit, participating students will receive one Food Pack (containing 5 pre-cooked meals)
  • At the Croydon campus students will also receive one goodie-box (containing various items such as muesli-bars, shampoo, cereals, etc. with items based on availability at the time)
  • The program currently operates from the Hawthorn and Croydon Campus, please ensure you choose the correct campus below as we are unable to transport reservations between campuses

Overall, this program will provide 150 individual students, 750 pre-cooked meals and 150 goodie-boxes, each week during the pandemic.

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)

Please select the date you would like to collect your Meal Packs from below, if you are unable to attend please contact us on ssu@ssu.org.au and we will reallocate your meal to the next person on the waitlist.

If you choose both the Meat & Vegetarian Pack and Vegetarian Pack, your Vegetarian order will be cancelled. These is a limited number available every day so please only choose 1 meal.
