Brisbane, Melbourne & Sydney Chefs (Casual)

We are looking to add to our pool of Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney casual chefs to help us facilitate our Cooking for a Cause program.

This is an exciting, multi-dimensional role best suited to a dynamic individual with a strong interest in social justice, education and preventing food waste.

The chef is responsible for the passionate and outstanding delivery of OzHarvest Brisbane, OzHarvest Melbourne or OzHarvest Sydney’s Cooking for a Cause events.
