Groceries and basic essentials

Are you having difficulty sourcing groceries and basic essentials?

There are numerous organisations and companies that can deliver food and groceries to you while you are in isolation.

UQ Hardship Hampers

Please note: Final hamper availability for this weekend has been exhausted. We plan for more hampers to be available from Tuesday 31 March.

Through working with our partners we have been able to secure a supply chain this week for non-perishables and have been able to access additional funding from UQ's Hardship Scheme to enable us to provide students in need with hampers free of charge if they are undergoing hardship.

We have limited stock levels and these hampers are available until Sunday 29 March. We are in discussions with our suppliers and more hampers may be available in the following days.

A big thank you to our partners at UQ Union and UQ Sport for their valuable food donations that have helped make this possible.

If you are experiencing hardship, order now.
