Addison Road Community Organisation

We’re a charity working with the community to share culture, make the world a greener, fairer place and are leaders in the grassroots #RacismNotWelcome campaign with our Ambassador, Craig Foster.

We rescue food, fight hunger and stand in solidarity with diverse communities in times of need.

We divert more than 6 tonnes of food from going to landfill and provide food to more than 8,000 people every week through our Addi Road Food Pantries in Marrickville and Camperdown and our Addi Road Food Relief Hub. 

We rely on the commitment of hundreds of dedicated volunteers and generous donors.

The best way to help?

Make a donation. This goes directly to buy bulk dry goods and fruit & vegetables (at super low prices only available to charities).

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.
