Yesterday around 130 CEO’s teamed up with top chefs for a charity cook off to help raise funds to fight hunger and homelessness in Australia.
Business leaders were challenged on their fundraising and culinary skills to benefit some of the country’s most vulnerable community members, while at the same time raising awareness about the issues of food security, homelessness and food waste.
Chef Works CEO, Jonathan Brown, donned an apron and joined top chefs such as Matt Moran, Guillaume Brahimi and Frank Camorra to prepare a three course meal for 1,000 of Sydney’s homeless and disadvantaged.
Every $1 donated provides 2 meals for those in need. The event has raised nearly $1,500,000, a figure that is still climbing. That’s a total of 3,000,000 meals!
CEOs through their sponsors, generate much needed funds for OzHarvest to continue its mission to turn surplus food into hearty and healthy meals for vulnerable Australians. The organisation currently has 30 vans which deliver nutritious rescued food to more than 800 charities in Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Gold Coast, Melbourne, Newcastle and Perth.
Ronni Kahn certainly pulled off yet another fantastic OzHarvest event.
“This event brings out the best in our business leaders who stand side by side with industry colleagues and competitors and some of the best chefs in the country, united in their efforts to really make a difference to the lives of not just their 1,000 hungry guests on the night of the CEO CookOff, but the thousands of people that OzHarvest helps every year”
