Our main aim is to assist students facing hardship by
· Providing a last-minute meal to students
· Helping support students’ wellbeing through reducing financial stress
· Continuing to support international students
The Pantry has a grocery shop-style layout, with all stock available on shelves. The Bluebird Pantry is run by UTSSA staff and students together with the assistance of our dedicated volunteers. If you would like to volunteer please click here
We would like to extend our deep appreciation to Market City Shopping Centre, Thai Kee IGA, Euca, Love Luna and Cornerstone Café for supporting the Bluebird Pantry.
Why we offer a Pantry
Bluebird Brekkie and Night Owl Noodles has been your fav service on campus for ten years but, with the COVID pandemic, food insecurity has dramatically increased for students creating a significant barrier to student success. So, we looked at how we could help and through some hard work we’ve been able to launch an extension of our food welfare services in the form of a Pantry.
The Pantry provides fair distribution of perishable and non-perishable food, personal hygiene items, contraception, and general household supplies.
Please note: As the Pantry is a new project, it will take a bit of time to build up and get some regular items. We appreciate your patience and support while we get this up and running and are excited to see how generous the community can be
