Addison Road Community Organisation

We’re a charity working with the community to share culture and make the world a greener, fairer place.

We rescue food and feed over 8,000 people each week and play a lead role in the grassroots #RacismNotWelcome campaign with our Ambassador Craig Foster.

With the Sydney lockdown we’ve seen a sharp rise—20% week-on-week—in the number of people contacting us for food relief.

What‘s the best way help?

The best way for you to help people, is to donate. Your donation allows us to buy bulk dry goods and fruit & vegetables at super low prices only available to charities like Addi Road. This way we can feed more people who are in need.

Prefer to donate via EFT?

Email us and we’ll send you our EFT details.

Our history

Once a seasonal wetland on the edge of a tall ironbark and turpentine forest, cared for by the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, Addi Road was also an army barracks from 1916 until 1976 when the Commonwealth handed over a tired and dilapidated army depot to be used as a community and recreational space.
