The (Free) Breakfast Club

Welcome to the (Free) Breakfast Club!

The (Free) Breakfast Club is a student-led campaign to combat the cost-of-living crisis and food insecurity on campus from 8.30am till we run out (so get there on time!), every Tuesday and Thursday during term time in the Green Room (SUHQ).

It is unacceptable that almost 70% of students cannot afford to purchase food on campus, per the SU Cost of Living Survey (764 respondents total) conducted earlier last year.

According to the SU and University’s joint Student Feedback Survey in Term 3 (3,131 respondents total):

  • 64% of students had to cut down on purchasing food on campus,

  • 59% had to cut down on groceries,

  • 27% skipped meals, and

  • 5% had to visit the library café for the free soup offered.

The ever-rising cost of living has placed an unprecedented burden on our students, forcing them to make difficult choices between paying rent or buying more food. This has serious consequences for their physical and mental health, as well as their academic performance.

Providing students with one free meal during the day can ease that burden slightly, as well as signal our support for them during times of uncertainty.
