RMIT University Student Union (RUSU) is run by students for students and receives financial grants from RMIT to complete its work. Many students are on low incomes and eating regular, healthy meals can be challenging due to cost of living and general life pressures. In recognition of the need for food security amongst the student population, and to promote healthy food choices, RUSU provides free healthy breakfasts and lunches to students every week. In 2019, RUSU gave out over 65,000 free breakfasts and over 60,000 free lunches to students across RMIT city, Bundoora, Brunswick and Point Cook campuses.
