Randwick families doing it tough during COVID are getting a helping hand from Randwick City Council with 200 food boxes being distributed each week.
The hampers are packed by volunteers at the Addi Road Community Centre in Marrickville and distributed to Randwick City families in need through local service providers.
Randwick Mayor Danny Said recently spent the morning at Addi Road packing food hampers alongside volunteers including Qantas flight crew.
“Everyone’s doing it tough at the moment during lockdown, but some more than others. These food hampers will go to local families most in need and will help put food on the table.
“Council will continue to provide the food hampers for the coming weeks while there is a need within our community.
“I’d particularly like to commend Addi Road for the wonderful work they do and all the volunteers giving up their time to help others,” explains Mayor Said.
Addi Road ambassador, Randwick local and former Socceroo Craig Foster said they’ve setup the food hamper crisis relief centre specifically to help housebound families in need.
“Over 60 organisations come here every day throughout the week...picking up these food hamper boxes that all of our wonderful volunteers pack every day.
“Were churning out hundreds of boxes a day to people right around Sydney in need, of course including Randwick Council.
“There are people in need in every LGA right around Sydney and anybody who needs help, needs food, whether it’s today, tomorrow or over the weekend you can get in touch with us here at Addi Road.”
