Cooking for Charity

Cooking for a Cause

Corporate Team Building with “Heart”.

When your team wants to do something ‘extra’ for their local community, please try one of these 4 heart-warming options.  Your team will get their “feel good” endorphins pumping, knowing that together they made a real impact to someone’s day.  From 1 to 4 hrs (and even a no-cook option if facilities & time are limited), this is the perfect corporate social responsibility (CSR) team activity.  Cooking for a Cause – OzHarvest, Foodbank, Oasis Youth Centre etc.

1. Cooking for the Homeless AND for your Team to enjoy

Our first (and most popular) option is to enjoy a fun, interactive Cheeky cooking event with fabulous food, music and vino for your team. AND to cook and package a large EXTRA portion for Australians in need.  Your group will amaze themselves as they bond, chat, laugh, cook, and create nutritious and delicious food with some of the recipes modified to suit. This Cooking for a Cause option inc:

  • A fun team building event, with music and vino.
  • A fantastic meal to eat and enjoy together.
  • Extra food to cook for your city’s most disadvantaged.
  • Cheeky organises with OzHarvest, Foodbank or another shelter.
  • Making cards for the people receiving your gift of food.
  • Add to any of our 1 to 4 hour Cheeky Formats.

2. Cooking solely for the Homeless.

The second option is most suitable when you’ve already arranged a team lunch or dinner.  It’s a fantastic mid-morning or afternoon option, where all of the food cooked will be packaged for the homeless (OzHarvest, Foodbank, Oasis etc), so they can really see your ‘care’ factor. This inc:

  • A fun team building event, with music and vino.
  • Abundant food to cook for your city’s most disadvantaged.
  • Suitable for 1 to 2.5 hour Cheeky Formats.
  • Most suited when lunch or dinner is pre-organised.
  • Making cards for the people receiving your gift of food.
  • You can opt for extra food for your team to enjoy a taste.

3. Sponsor a charity organisation to cook with your team.

Why not cook with people from a charity your company supports?   Please see the video opposite of an event with children with Cerebral Palsy sponsored by a company’s Foundation.  It was just amazing with staff interacting and helping the children!

Other events could be with the hard-working staff from a charity or the people in need themselves. For example CanTeen, Camp Quality, Aboriginal Housing, Oasis Youth Centre, Make a Wish, Starlight Foundation etc.  Your team will love the interaction, creating a ‘light and fun’ event for people in need of a few smiles.

This event includes:

  • A fun team building event, with music and vino (optional).
  • Chatting & cooking with people who need a laugh.
  • Or the option to simply sponsor their event.
  • The extra feel good of seeing these most deserved people, enjoying a relief from their day-to-day.

Formats & Locations:

  • Suitable for 1 to 4 hour Cheeky Formats.
  • Perfect for a brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, canapes or dinner.
  • Can be held Aust-wide, for groups of 7 to 700.
  • Aprons & food gift packs can be arranged for the attendees.
  • Fantastic for when charities get together for their own conferences / retreats / rejuvenation camps.

4. Interactive Quiz & Packing Food for the Homeless.

This option is best when you only have a short time period, larger groups and cooking is tricky.

For example we recently held this event for 350 conference delegates at the Brisbane Hilton ballroom as a conference wrap-up –  it was a huge success!  See the Food Boxes to the right!  This includes:

  • A fun, high-energy interactive quiz.
  • Trivia-style questions, around food, your co. & the charity
  • A team building event, with music and vino.
  • Packing food boxes for families in distress.
  • Suitable for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Perfect when cooking isn’t an option.
  • A sensational Conference Team Activity
  • Making cards for the people receiving your gift of food.
