The Adelaide Central Market is proud to support many South Australian charitable organisations through on-site activation’s in support of our community. For more information about how to seek our support for fundraising is available through our Charities page.
In 2017, we are proud to provide our support to the following organisations as our community partners.
OzHarvest are a non-denominational charity that rescues food that would otherwise go to waste, and delivers safety to charities in need. Many Adelaide Central Market stalls have been participating in food rescue since 2011 collecting over 70,285kg of food equating to over 219,855 meals. You’ll catch the wonderful OzHarvest volunteers rescuing food from our stalls every Saturday afternoon.
The Big Issue are an independent, not for profit organisation dedicated to supporting and creating job opportunities for homeless and disadvantaged people. The Big Issue Magazine is a fortnightly publication sold by homeless and disadvantaged people and we provide our support by allowing the publication to be sold within the Market. We also support the Big Issue by being the venue for the Big Lunch (stay tuned for more details!).
TeamKids is the fundraising platform for the Women’s and Children’s Hospital Foundation, raising money to support the Women’s and Children’s Hospital in Adelaide. TeamKids have provided more than $30 million to the WCH over the past ten years, and are committed to ensuring that mums, children and their families have access to the very best in medical care, hospital facilities and support services at a time when they need it most.
Zoos SA is a conservation-based charity and represents a significant part of South Australia’s heritage and social history since 1878. We also sponsor the Mainland Tammar Wallaby, native to mainland South Australia and is currently listed as ‘extinct in the wild’ under the Commonwealth Environment and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 and IUCN Red List.
