Foodbank Emergency Student Food Parcel

Unfortunately, the CDU Student Emergency Food Parcel program has ended.

Starting on 9 April, CDU provided more than 3,600 emergency student food parcels over a 14 week period to students experiencing financial hardship during the COVID-19 Pandemic. 

This program was made possible through the generous support of the Charles Darwin University Foundation, Newmont Australia, and Foodbank NT. 

We understand that some of you may still be experiencing hardship, and if this is the case we encourage you to contact one of the following organisations who work with Foodbank to access ongoing assistance: 

CDU students can also access assistance through CDU Equity Services for confidential and free of charge assistance in careers and employment, counselling, access and inclusion, and off-campus accommodation.

For out-of-hours telephone crisis support, you can 1300 93 33 93 for emergency assistance.
