The Addison Road Food Pantry has come under increased pressure during the COVID-19 pandemic, with over 2,500 people lining up for food and essential supplies in the last week alone. I recently visited to thank the wonderful volunteers and to support the Food Pantry's call out for donations and support. We have all been shaken by the bare shelves at our local stores and supermarkets, but for an increasing number of families and vulnerable people, including older people, people with disabilities and their carers, and the increasing number of casuals left unemployed as a result of COVID-19, the Addison Road Food Pantry has been nothing short of a lifeline. Other local community groups are also now relying on the Addison Road Food Pantry to supply food and other essentials. It is clear that yet again, the Food Pantry represents the heart and soul of the inner west coming together in a time of crisis. Demand for food and essentials is increasing every week and I sincerely thank the volunteers who are giving their time to help out and to the many inner westies who have donated food and money in this difficult time.
