In 2014, we set up the FoodHub due to the increased demand from students who were facing short-term financial hardship and difficulty in buying food and daily essentials. Our aim as a Students’ Union is to support and advise our students, so working alongside student volunteers, we developed the FoodHub.
The FoodHub is supported by donations from Staffordshire University, students and staff, external donors, and fundraising events. We believe that the FoodHub is a critical part of our service. It provides a backstop for our students while we work with them to identify additional funding options to empower them to maximise their income.
We’re always happy to talk about the work of the FoodHub and promote what we do. In 2019, we spoke with the BBC and in 2020 we were interviewed by The Guardian.
Ultimately, our aim is simple: we want to provide our students with immediate access to food while working through longer-term solutions.
Our friendly team are here to support you. If you're struggling with your finances or need access to our FoodHub service, please get in touch.
Sometimes we receive items which we're not necessarily able to use for the FoodHub or we have items which have gone beyond their Best Before Date.

Those organisations are:
