About Addi Road's Food Relief program:

Every week we divert over 8 tonnes of food from landfill and provide food to more than 8,000 people – through our two Addi Road Food Pantries, Mobile Food Pantry, and Food Relief Hub.

*Donations are the lifeblood of our food relief efforts. We are not government funded.*

  • There will be food stalls and a bar, and some great local support acts.
