Emergency Food Relief: Food Hamper Application Form

The Curtin Student Guild is running an Emergency Food Relief program for current Curtin University students experiencing hardship as a result of COVID-19.

Emergency Food Relief Hampers are strictly available for current Curtin University students in urgent need. The service is available to students residing within the Perth metropolitan area only. If you reside outside of this area, please contact the Student Assist team directly via student.assist@guild.curtin.edu.au to enquire about alternative support services and resources that may be available to you.

Food Hampers
St Vincent de Paul Society (WA) Inc has generously offered to help Curtin students through this difficulty, and has donated pre-assembled food hampers to distribute. Food hampers will contain a mix of basic non-perishable items aimed to last up to two weeks. Sample contents include rice, noodles, pasta, pasta sauce, canned items (beans / soup / vegetables / fruit / tuna), long life dairy etc. 

Please be aware that all hampers are pre-packed and provided "as is" - unfortunately no alterations can be made to food hampers. Due to overwhelming demand and limited resources, we are unable to customise boxes in order to accommodate specific dietary requirements, however hampers do contain a broad mix of items, including several that cater to various dietary needs. Should you be unable to make use of any items in your hamper, you are welcome to pass these items onto friends or family. Alternatively, you may also return these to us at the Curtin Student Guild, to be re-allocated to others in need. 

Hamper Collection
Once your application has been approved, further details for collection will be emailed to you. When completing the form, please ensure that you only nominate collection times at which you are certain you will be able to collect your parcel. If your availability changes after submitting the form, you must notify us as soon as possible, via food.support@guild.curtin.edu.au. Please note that due to extremely high demand, and in fairness to other students seeking assistance, any student who fails to arrive for their scheduled collection time or is more than 30min late (without providing adequate notice) will have their application cancelled. Cancelled applicants are required submit a new form, which will be placed at the end of the queue.

Grocery Vouchers
Please note that due to the overwhelming demand for the service and available funds being exhausted, Coles digital grocery vouchers are unfortunately no longer available.

All requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and are subject to resources available.

Please use your Curtin student email (xxx@student.curtin.edu.au)
