Mega Meal Challenge

Home / Mega Meal Challenge

ONE-WEEK INTENSIVE CORPORATE VOLUNTEERING TO PROVIDE NUTRITIOUS FOOD FOR PEOPLE IN NEED.

The Mega Meal Challenge will provide WA Corporates with a week-long volunteering opportunity in our Community Kitchen to help Foodbank WA produce 1,000+ pre-packaged frozen meals to feed hungry West Australians.

This is a fantastic opportunity for those looking to enhance or build their corporate social responsibility program by providing a rewarding team building and cultural inclusion opportunity.

HOW IT WORKS

Foodbank WA Community Kitchen operates on a daily basis led by our qualified chef that coordinates teams of up to six corporate volunteers between the hours of 8:30am and 3pm, 5 days a week Monday to Friday. Together, they prepare, cook, package and label more than 1,000 meals per week.

WAR ON FOOD WASTE

The Community Kitchen utilises ingredients from the Foodbank WA warehouse which has helped to further reduce our food waste from 11% to 3%. Where essential ingredients are unavailable (such as protein and other foods seldom donated) we need to purchase it to make up a meal.

WHO BENEFITS

The meals are distributed through our six distribution centres located throughout Western Australia to a network of over 480 registered charities.  The charities include faith-based institutions and other not-for-profit organisations that provide food to the most vulnerable members of our community.

COST

$5,000 exc of GST to purchase ingredients, equipment and and chef assistance on the day.
