guild grocer on campus

You should never have to go hungry. Universities Australia (2018) claims roughly 1 in 7 students regularly go without food, so to help mitigate this at QUT we have set up food assistance options for our students.

QUT Guild Grocer is available to all QUT students to help you get through till your next payday. 

The services we have available are:

·      Kelvin Grove - C Block, Level 2

·      Gardens Point – X Block, Level 2 (Email foodbank@qutguild.com to arrange a booking)

Food Assistance is not means tested, it is a temporary assistance measure to support as many students as possible, so if we do see you regularly needing assistance we might refer you to other services.

 

Kelvin Grove - C Block, Level 2

To access the Guild Grocer, just pop over to the QUT Guild Kelvin Grove Office (C Block, Level 2) with your QUT student ID card and we can let you in. Our office is open from Monday to Friday, 9 AM - 3:30 PM.

 

Gardens Point – X Block, Level 2 (Email booking required)

Alternatively, if you email foodbank@qutguild.com we can set up a time for someone to let you into the Gardens Point Guild Grocer at X Block, Level 2.

 

Donations

QUT Guild buys food as well as receives donations to keep the Guild Grocer as stocked up as they can be. We offer non-perishable items including pasta, rice and cans of vegetables as well as personal hygiene items.

To help our Guild Grocer run successfully, we do accept and welcome donations. We accept food donations as long as they are long life items with an expiry date of at least 3 months or more. Food donations must be new, unused and not damaged. If you would like to make a donation, please email foodbank@qutguild.com or studentsrights@qutguild.com or make a drop off to our Kelvin Grove Office (C Block, Level 2) Monday to Friday 9-3:30.

If you would prefer to make a monetary donation, please use the form here and/or contact finance@qutguild.com. We appreciate any help that we can get from donations. Every little bit counts!
