Student Union proud to announce the continuation of Supper Club until the end of Summer Term


Lancaster University has agreed to continue funding the LUSU run Supper Club and Pantry, until the end of this academic term. The Supper Club supports students by providing a different free, hot meal every Thursday starting 6pm in the Learning Zone.

Similarly, students can grab food or hygiene products from the pantry in the student’s Union welcome desk in Bowland Main, with a valid Student ID. These support measures came about in 2023 following voiced concerns from students regarding the cost-of-living crisis and rising levels of food poverty in the UK.

The Club has been widely popular amongst many students since its release and was recently feature on ITV News whilst covering the cost-of-living crisis and its impacts to students. The Student Union are proud the University are keeping it running financially and supporting students this way in a welcoming space. 

Following the uncertainty on whether the service will stand against time, current Welfare VP, Josh Newsham, states:

“Students are struggling, and have been for years, as maintenance loans have not gone up with inflation. We hear hundreds of heart-breaking stories each week from students, and we want to be there for absolutely all of them – meeting them with the compassion and dignity they deserve. Supper Club offers a warm community space with free hot food in these difficult times.”

Josh Newsham, Welfare VP

Booking tickets is best to guarantee a meal, and this can be done through the SU website.
