UNSA launches Food Pantry for Students

Wednesday, 21 April 2021

UNSA is proud to launch a Food Pantry project with the aim to help University students who might be short on time, money, or experiencing hardship:


We are working with existing staff and also reaching out to students who are able to make donations. If you can manage, we would love to get you involved in the UNSA pantry.

You can help us by popping in an extra item or two into your shopping trolley and bringing it along to one of our donation bins!

All donated items need to be sealed. Our UNSA staff will properly sanitised before we distribute them to students to ensure the safety of all.

UNSA's drop-off bins will be located at the following locations:

  • Shop101, Ourimbah
  • UNSA Building, Callaghan
  • Shortland Building (near Gloria Jeans), Callaghan

As the UNSA Food Pantry is a new project, it will take a little bit of time to build up and get some regular items for students.

We appreciate your patience and support while we get this up and running, and are excited to see how generous the University of Newcastle community can be.

We look forward to your involvement!
