Addison Road Community Organisation (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 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 going to landfill and provide food to more than 8,000 people.

We do this via our two Addi Road Food Pantries, our Addi Road Mobile Food Pantry, our Food Relief Hub and community partners. 

We rely on hundreds of committed volunteers and generous donors to 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 Organisation is proudly supported by the Addi Road Community Action Fund (ABN 416 653 758 779).

Addi Road: a rich history

Only just over 200 years ago, this land was 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.
