Starting semester two, Massey University students will have access to a free and filling breakfast every single day.
Breakfast, which will be run out of the lounge on level one of the Student Services Trust building, will include toast, spreads, a variety of cereal and one hot meal such as porridge.
Hot water will also be there for students to make their own hot drinks and dietary requirements will be catered too also.
Massey University will fund the breakfast out of their budget and Massey at Wellington Students’ Association (MAWSA) will distribute it and ensure it’s running smoothly.
Campus co-lab host, Anna Lees will be in charge of overseeing the breakfast each morning.
She says the process of setting up the breakfast venture has been surprisingly quick, which means students can start using it sooner than anticipated.
For the moment, the breakfast will stick to the basics but as the semester goes on, MAWSA will see what other things are possible to increase the breakfast variety.
“As it gets more popular and used, we will explore more options,” says Lees.
Free breakfasts, which were held as part of MAWSA’s De-stress Week last semester, were a success says MAWSA President, Adam Logan Cairns.
He says he is pleased to see Massey University creating a similar project.
“It is so cool Massey has picked up on student needs here in Wellington, especially when MAWSA sees a lot of hardship grants for all sorts of things.
“This will help out students even more,” says Cairns.
Free breakfasts will run every weekday morning from 8.30am to 9.30am at the Lounge on Level 1 of the Student Services Trust Building.
