Food support from Macquarie

Free Food Hampers are now back on campus at Wally Walk every Friday from 12.30pm to 2pm for both International and Domestic Students. Due to current lockdown restrictions, you can only come to collect these if you are within 5km radius or within the LGA of Ryde. If you are outside this area, we encourage you to access the other services listed on this page to consider what other supports are local to you. Searching terms into search engines such as "free food support" and "community support" along with your area may guide you to some locations. If you require further support or want to discuss, submit a CARE report.
