Soup Kitchen

For those who have been interested in volunteering at, or attending a soup kitchen, the University is following the latest advice from government and health authorities as the COVID-19 situation rapidly evolves. For this reason, we have decided to suspend the activities and events related to all soup kitchens at all campuses.

Please join us in WesternLife to see all of the events we are running online! 

Each Wednesday we host a Virtual Soup Kitchen.

We are going to continue to cook online together into the spring semester – but we are just not able to keep up with so many deliveries! This means for semester 2 we will require you to pick up your food items from your closest WSU campus at the CLV Village office.

We will still buy the groceries for you

We will bag it up into just what you need

We will cook together as usual

*** We are just asking you to tell us, when you register, which campus is easiest for you. We will drop the bag off for you there. ***

We hope to see you sometime during Semester 2!!

Please note that you will need to RSVP by 12.00pm the Monday before in order for us to have the groceries ready.

To join the cooking class, have your groceries and basic cooking utensils ready in your cooking space and join via Zoom at 5.30pm

Happy Cooking!

The soup kitchen has operated since the spring semester of 2015. It started at Campbelltown and due to its popularity it has now expanded to Hawkesbury campus, Bankstown campus, Kingswood campus, Parramatta City campus and also at Parramatta North village every fortnight.  Each week or fortnight during semester we provide a hot nutritious meal for students free of charge. All students are welcome so please pop in and check it out on your closest campus. We look forward to seeing you at a soup kitchen soon.

Soup kitchens are brought to you by Chaplaincy, Campus Life, Student Councils, Campus Provost and School of Nursing & Midwifery.
