We’re starting off the new month by introducing you to @ourbigkitchen!
A community-run industrial kitchen, Our Big Kitchen is a volunteer organization helping prepare and distribute fresh meals to over 80,000 disadvantaged Australians across Sydney. OBK believes in the power of giving through doing good to others, and believes that making food is a way for people from all walks of life to connect in a non-judgmental environment, while also helping others in need. By working closely with organizations like SecondBite and Foodbank, OBK minimizes food waste, turning both fresh produce and bought-in ingredients to prepare home-cooked meals.
Some may view it as just a small, somewhat insignificant gesture beyond just giving food, but we believe that giving others a small touch of warmth, home, and friendliness is an amazing goal to strive for, and we are delighted to have them with us for our Local Initiative.
