QUT Guild Providing Food Relief to QUT Students

By March 24, 2020 April 1st, 2020 No Comments

The world is moving at a record pace right now, and we have updates for you surrounding Glass Magazine coming soon. However, right now, we have a more pressing thing to talk about for the minute – Immediate Food Relief for Students.

The QUT Guild Food Bank is open at QUT Kelvin Grove C201. The Student Rights portfolio has put together free food packs, with enough food to look after yourself for at the very least a couple of days, as well as loose food and sanitary items including nappies and toothpaste. The QUT Guild Food Bank will be open until Friday, so please come down and grab some provisions.

We’ve been blown away by the number of donations that have been received. We’re trying our best to support students and have more measures on the way to help further in this dire time.

“Thank you so much to all those of you who have donated to the Foodbank. The number of staff and students who have lent a hand is truly incredible. The Guild remains committed to supporting students through this trying time, even as we move to working from home and as we see less and less students on campus. No matter how dire things become, we are always here. If you are struggling with food insecurity then please come and see us at Kelvin Grove (C Block, 201) and pick up a welfare pack. In it, there is enough food for 3-4 days and you can grab some toiletries or sanitary products too. As we move into further isolation, we will continue to provide support but in a more digital way.” – Sarah and Ramisa, Student Rights VP

The Foodbank will be open from 8:30am Wednesday the 25th of March – Until Friday.

If you are feeling unwell or are in self-isolation/quarantine, please email studentrights@qutguild.com to arrange an alternate solution. Do not come into the QUT Guild office if you are sick or feeling symptoms or are required to stay home.

Stay safe and stay tuned for updates.
