The 2018 OzHarvest CEO CookOff set a fundraising record for the hunger relief agency with the support of team members from across the Woolworths business.
The Woolworths contingent was made up of four teams, headed up by their respective General Managers from Woolworths Supermarkets, FoodCo, Marketing and WooliesX. Our 20-strong team helped to prepare and serve a three-course meal to more than 1300 guests, who are from the more vulnerable areas of our communities.
In addition to preparing the meals on the night, the Woolworths team collectively raised more than $112,000 for OzHarvest. Every dollar raised helps with OzHarvest’s operational and infrastructure costs, allowing them to deliver surplus fresh food, directly and free of charge to more than 1000 charities Australia-wide.
The 2018 OzHarvest CEO Cook-Off raised a record $2,000,000, to enable them to deliver another 4,000,000 meals over the coming year.
