Student Fresh Boxes
The University of Melbourne is offering free meal packs to support students. As part of the University’s Free Meal Program, students can now order and collect a Student Fresh Box containing 5kg of high-quality fresh fruits and vegetables. The produce selection is locally sourced from Australian producers and is enough to last a week.
Free Meal packs are also available for collection, find out more about the program and how to register here.
