Free Meal Project

In cooperation with the Studierendenwerk Aachen, we started the Free Meal Project in the Winter Semester 20/21. Our goal with this project is to support students that find themselves in a difficult financial situation due to the Corona Pandemic and struggle to finance their everyday needs.

To be a part of the Free Meal Project means you get one free meal everyday at the Canteen.

Who can receive a free meal?

All students who….

  • have been granted bridging help (Überbrückungshilfe) from the Ministry of Education and Research in the Summer Semester 2021
  • I have had an application approved by the Social Committee in the Summer Semester 2021. This includes:
    • applied for a social loan at the AStA and got it approved.
    • applied for a ProRWTH bridging scholarship and got it approved.
    • have had their semester ticket refunded due to social hardship.

    Does this apply to you? Applying for your free table is easy.
