What a day! Thank you to everyone who attended our Addi Road Writers’ Festival.

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.

Homage to Carlos Femenias

Homage to Carlos Femenias

Carlos isn’t here anymore. We miss him and we remember him. It’s a terribly sad thing when someone dies. Partly because they have never entirely left us. The larger their lives, the longer they live on through our memories and all they have done for us. Carlos Femenias was one of those giants in the heart. And Addi Road acknowledges his passing as something very significant and important today.

Addi Road’s powerful film Die. Or Die Trying: Escaping the Taliban is the gripping and emotional experience of 15 young women from Kabul as the Taliban invade their city and seize power.


The birthplace of multiculturalism in Australia, the grounds of what is now Addi Road was handed over to the community in 1976 after 60 years as an army depot.

Before the army depot, it was sold off for cheap housing, 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 of the Eora Nation.
