Addi Road

A small charity with a huge impact

Working with the community, we elevate human rights, arts & culture and sustainability. We rescue food, fight hunger, and are leaders in the grassroots #RacismNotWelcome campaign with our Ambassador, Craig Foster. We stand in solidarity with diverse communities in times of need.

Fighting hunger

Every week we divert over 8 tonnes of food from landfill and provide food to more than 8,000 people – through our two Addi Road Food Pantries, Mobile Food Pantry, and Food Relief Hub. 

Hundreds of committed volunteers and generous donors make this possible.

The best way to help?

Donations are the lifeblood of our food relief efforts. We are not government funded.

All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.

Addi Road Community Action Fund (ABN 416 653 758 779) proudly supports Addi Road Community Organisation.

Addi Road: a rich history

Only just over 200 years ago, the land here at Addi Road was a seasonal wetland on the edge of a tall ironbark and turpentine forest cared for by the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation.

From 1916 Addison Road was an army barracks, then in 1976, the Commonwealth handed over a tired and dilapidated army depot for recreational and community use.
