The OzHarvest CEO CookOff will return for its 6th year on Monday 6th March with Australia’s CEOs, Managing Directors and business leaders joining forces with 40 of the country’s best chefs to feed over 1,000 Sydneysiders in need.
Some big names in the restaurant business will be returning including Matt Moran (ARIA), Neil Perry (Rockpool), Guillaume Brahimi (Bistro Guillaume) and Peter Gilmore (Quay). They’ll be joined by new faces like Morgan McGlone (Belles Hot Chicken), Federico Zanellato (LuMi Bar and Dining) and Paul Carmichael (Momofuku Seiobo).
Chefs and CEOs at the flagship fundraising event will create a three-course feast to feed vulnerable Aussies, raise much needed funds and highlight the issue of food insecurity, homelessness and food wastage.
OzHarvest CEO and Founder, Ronni Kahn emphasises that the CEO CookOff is more than just a fundraising event. “This is a unique opportunity for business leaders to understand and change the lives of so many vulnerable Aussies, who go without every day. By cooking and serving up a delicious meal, you experience the hope, humility and spirit of this truly life changing event, which has a profound effect on everyone who takes part.”
The 2016 event broke all records raising an incredible $1.6 million nationally, which helped provide more than three million meals to those who need it most. The 2017 CEO CookOff aims to be the biggest yet with a fundraising target of $2 million to allow OzHarvest to provide 4 million meals around Australia.
OzHarvest is calling on value-driven business leaders who want to swap high powered meetings for a high pressure kitchen and take part in this unique event. If you are one, or know someone who is, please register now or nominate at www.ceocookoff.com.au.
