The first ever UK CEO CookOff will see 100 senior business leaders join forces with 30 other top chefs, in one enormous kitchen! The aim is to raise £2 million to tackle food waste, obesity and malnutrition, through the work of the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and UKHarvest.
Highly awarded Australian Chef Cameron Matthews from The Long Apron Restaurant, Spicers Clovelly Retreat is one of three top Australian chefs flying over to participate and is enthusiastic about the event. “We’ll be serving a banquet to everyday heroes who work in schools and hospitals, as a thank you for their amazing work with children and patients. They will also be joined by special guests from each of the companies represented by the CEOs. It’s a fantastic and ambitious event, which could make a real difference to the lives of millions of people.”
Says Cameron, "The concept is simple and essential – UKHarvest’s key objective is to eliminate hunger and food waste through the redistribution of quality surplus food to those in need. UKHarvest provide the framework for ongoing food rescue and sharing."
The aim is to raise £2 million to tackle food waste, obesity and malnutrition, through the work of the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and UKHarvest. There are 13 million kids in this country, and one third of them are obese. The funds raised from the CEO CookOff will go towards food education schemes in schools, via the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation, and will also be used to save surplus food from going to landfill (and redistribute it to those in need) through the work of charity UKHarvest.
