Warriors prop James Gavet has been nominated by his club for an NRL community service award.

Gavet, who has battled mental health issues in the past, regularly delivers food parcels to Auckland's destitute and promotes community wellbeing and literacy.

The winner of the award, known as the Ken Stephen Medal, will be announced at the 2016 Dally M Awards night.

Other nominees include Sharks skipper Paul Gallen, Parramatta forward Tim Mannah and Knights halfback Trent Hodkinson.

"The nominees for this year's Ken Stephen Medal are among some of the best in our game when it comes to service and sacrifice off the field," NRL community manager Ellen Beale said.
