The UOW Food+ with Care team would like to thank our staff and community members for their generous support of our students during COVID-19.

This program would not have been possible without your wonderful donations of time, money, and goods throughout an incredibly difficult year. All together this generosity has accounted for around $150,000 in donations and hundreds of hours’ worth of volunteer time, all of which has contributed to supporting over 600 students to stay focused on their study.

As COVID cases are currently low in NSW, and student numbers have dropped on our food collection days, the working group have decided to pause the Food+ with Care program for now.

A small group of students will continue to require support, and we will revert to managing requests via regular student support processes, on a case-by-case basis. Please continue to refer students to the Student Support Advisor, or contact the Student Services Central if you have concerns about a student.

We’ve received countless pieces of positive feedback from students and their families who have expressed gratitude for this support week after week. This has been an incredibly rewarding initiative that will leave a lasting impression on our student community.

Thank you again for your unwavering support.
