In collaboration with Curtin University, a group here at Flinders are exploring what impact COVID-19 has had on student’s access to food.

They’re using a Qualtrics survey to ask a number of questions about your food access over the last 12 months.

HCD has reviewed and endorsed this survey, as has the university as a whole. Thus you might get notification about this survey from multiple channels, including this post, Ping! and other groups within Flinders (e.g. FUSA).

I encourage you to complete this survey, whether or not COVID-19 has affected your access to food. The results of this survey will help us plan better how we support students around basic needs such as food. Those who complete it can also go into a draw for one of 14 x $50 food vouchers which might help with the monthly budgeting.

Survey aside, if you have been struggling with food access, see this post we put up earlier about various food focused and other wellbeing support services. Also, remember the student support services directory.
