One of the challenges of being a student is eating well, and unfortunately beer 🍺 doesn’t constitute a suitable diet on its own.
But eating well can be expensive… Those activated almonds and spiced quinoa balls are costing me a fortune!
But this all changed in 2018 when OASIS and FUSA launched the Flinders Community Market.
What is it?
It’s a community market for all students, where you can access free and low-cost food.
The Flinders Community Market is held in the Oasis Student Wellbeing Centre every Thursday during semester, from 11 AM – 1 PM, to bring you FREE fruit, vegetables and bread, along with LOW-COST pantry items.
No need to register or book, just turn up! We stock-up the produce and bakery goods at 11 AM and 12 PM to give everyone an opportunity to benefit.
Make sure you bring a bag (or two)! 🍅🥔🥕
Where is it?
The OASIS Common Room – OASIS is located at J7 on the campus map – walk from the library through the laneway to the building opposite car park 5. Walk downstairs to find OASIS.
Why a market?
Good nutrition is central to performing at your best. The market is there to help you get good quality food at really good prices.
Also, markets create a wonderful sense of community and provide an avenue through which individuals or groups can share/sell their creations.
Oh yeah, we need volunteers!!
Despite all the advances in AI and robotics, it turns out that a market can’t just run itself. We need people. We need you!
We are always looking for volunteers to help us at our community market. We begin setting up at 10:00 AM and finish packing away at 1:30 PM. If you are able to volunteer for some or all of this time, we would be so grateful!
By volunteering – you will be a part of a wonderful team, learn some new skills and help the student community!
Plus – the time you contribute goes towards points in the Flinders Horizon Award.
If you are interested, please get in touch with us by dropping into OASIS, or emailing email@example.com, and we will let you know what the next steps are!
