As of Wednesday 1st March UQU, your student union, will launch Kampus Kitchen, a welfare initiative serving free dinner to UQ students every Wednesday 6pm – 7pm from The Union Hub.
Each week UQU volunteers will serve a nutritional meal from The Union Hub to anyone who finds themselves on campus late in the evening and wants to save a few dollars.
“I am incredibly proud to introduce the first free weekly dinner on campus,” said UQU Student Rights VP, Emily Earle.
As a student who lives out of home I understand what it’s like living on a budget and the impact welfare services like this have on university students”.
With two thirds of students living under the poverty line UQU Student Rights VP, Domenico Sotille explained that Kampus Kitchen is another initiative to combat student poverty.
“These free dinners are a practical way that we try and help”.
A Green Thai Curry (chicken or vegetables) with steamed rice will be the first meal served at Kampus Kitchen with a new meal to be served each month.
This semester UQ students can look forward to: tofu or chicken with Hokkien noodles, butter chicken or vegetables with steamed rice and beef bolognese and mushroom or vegetable bolognese with penne.
Kampus Kitchen brings the total number of free meals provided by UQU to 4 per week, including Morning Marmalade’s free breakfast bar.
To volunteer for Kampus Kitchen or Morning Marmalade please contact Emily and Domenico via [email protected]
Kampus Kitchen is located in The Union Hub, located next to UQU Secondhand Texts in the old Lolly Shop space. The meat we use is Halal friendly.
