Sponsored: Join CEO CookOff

What happens when you take 100 of Australia’s business leaders, add 40 top chefs and mix with over a thousand people in need?

You get OzHarvest’s flagship fundraising event – the CEO CookOff – which creates a 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 it’s more than just a fund raising 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 last 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 bigger and better than ever with a fundraising target of $2 million.

Aussie Home Loans CEO, James Symond cooked alongside Neil Perry earlier this year, personally raising over $100,000 and was inspired to get his whole company involved.

“The experience left me humbled and inspired, it’s an important reminder that anyone in a position to give time or money, should. The CEO CookOff is an eye-opener for all CEOs and executives, some people just fall by the way due to tragic events or circumstances beyond their control, but should still be treated with dignity and respect, and that’s what OzHarvest provides,” said Symond.

Top chefs have already signed up, including Matt Moran (ARIA), Neil Perry (Rockpool Group), Peter Gilmore (Quay), Guillaume Brahimi (Guillaume), Dan Hong (Mr Wong), Paul Carmichael (Momofuku Seiobo) and Morgan McGlone (Belles Hot Chicken). The event will be held on Monday 6th March in Sydney.

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 at
