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 at our two Addi Road Food Pantries 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 Foundation (ABN 41 653 758 779) proudly supports Addi Road Community Organisation.


We believe access to safe, nutritious and culturally appropriate food is a human right. Our Addi Road Food Pantry helps anyone in need to stretch their budget, reduce food waste and put healthy food on their table.

Addi Road is the birthplace of multiculturalism in Australia. In 1976 the site was handed over to the community, after almost 50 years as a army depot. In earlier years it was a market garden and brick-making site. Prior to 1852 it was a seasonal wetland on the edge of a forest cared for by the Gadigal people.
