When we were asked if would be interested in helping out Oz harvest to set up there new 550 sq/m kitchen facility in Alexandria we were happy to help out with as much as we could – including the kitchen sink……
My name is Ronni Kahn and I am the founder and CEO of OzHarvest.
OzHarvest is a “for impact” organisation that rescues good food and delivers that food to vulnerable Australians. We do this every day with a fleet of vehicles and our purpose is to Nourish Our Country and make a difference by feeding people in need, by educating people about healthy eating and by engaging with community. We have just delivered our 28,000,000th meal for free to those in need in Australia!!
Goodman International, major sponsors of ours, began fitting out a 550sq metre warehouse in Alexandria , Sydney, that they have donated to OzHarvest for our use for the next ten years. Upstairs will be our offices, downstairs will be a commercial production and training kitchen. This will be used for a number of purposes:-
Cooking for a Cause Team building events for corporates, dinners with celebrity chefs , preparing produce when there is surplus but most importantly, a training facility for disadvantaged youth to receive hospitality and life skill training to prepare and provide the kids with a pathway to employment.
We believe that there is an unprecedented opportunity for the catering equipment industry to come together to help us create an extraordinary space that will change lives and be at the heart of what OzHarvest does.
To this end, I have called you Daniel, to see if you could help support us. I know that we require cleaners sink, knee operated hand basin and spray arm faucet.
Perhaps you can see your way to donating to this cause that will have every top chef in the kitchen as they endorse us and have offered to mentor the kids we are teaching and cook a meal as a fundraiser.
Chefs like Matt Moran, Neil Perry, Guillame Brahimi etc….are all ambassadors of ours.
In principle, it is a big kitchen with big vision and it is going to take a lot of friends to come together to help us make this happen!!!
