Addison Rd Community Center’s War On Waste

The phrase ‘Food glorious food’ can be traced back to the 1960’s Broadway musical Oliver, an adaptation of Charles Dickens’ novel; ‘The adventures of Oliver Twist. The tale of young children fantasizing about food, whilst seeking out crumbs from the streets to satisfy their hunger.  History has a habit of repeating it-self and in contemporary Australia, due to socio/economic hardship, one in six Australians experience food insecurity, where individuals seek food relief from charities.  The irony is that over 5 million tonnes of food waste ends up in landfill p/a in Australia.  Jess spoke with Mark Mordue from the Addison Rd Community Center about the initiatives the Centre is facilitating to address food wastage and insecurity in Sydney’s Inner West.
