Student community pantry

The community pantry has been set up to assist students who are struggling to purchase food during the pandemic. At the food pantry you will be able to select from a range of fresh foods, staples and grocery items.

Students are required to show their student ID and to bring their own bags.

In line with Victorian Government advice the wearing of masks is now compulsory when you are in public indoor spaces unless you have a lawful reason not to. Please ensure that everyone is wearing a suitable mask or face covering when attending the community pantry. More information about the requirement can be found here.
