Food Assistance

QUT Guild Food Bank is available to all QUT students to help you get through till your next payday. Please note that we have limited stock and this service is meant to support students in need who are facing financial hardship and difficult circumstances.

A booking is not required as long as you come during opening hours. Please note we can only serve a maximum of 50 students per day.

The Food Bank is located at:

  • Kelvin Grove - C Block, Level 2 (just as you come out of the lift)
  • Open from Tuesday - Thursday, 10 AM -  2 PM 

Food Bank is a temporary assistance measure to support as many students as possible. Students are limited to one visit per fortnight and 10 items per visit. For those needing regular assistance, please contact and we will be able to refer you to other welfare services.


To help this initiative run successfully, we 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.
  • Must be new, unused and not damaged.
  • Must be in original packaging.

If you would like to make a donation (including monetary), please email or make a drop off to our Kelvin Grove Office (C Block, Level 2) Monday to Friday 9am-4pm.

We appreciate any help that we can get from donations. Every little bit counts!
