  • OBK Supports UN World Yoga Day!

    Thursday, May 21, 2015

    On Sunday June 21st Our Big Kitchen will join forces with United Nations World Yoga Day, which will be held at the Bondi Pavilion. The worldwide inaugural event will include 177 countries participating on the same day.  OBK is catering for the event, expected to attract up to six hundred attendees and thousands more visitors. OBK is also hosting a Karma Cook-up that evening at the communal kitchen in Bondi.

    The Karma Cook-up, for adults (16+) interested in yoga, meditation or simply giving back, involves cooking for those less fortunate, with food made on the night going to feeding the homeless, victims of domestic abuse, people in crisis and families in need. Participants will also enjoy dinner and a guided meditation at a cost of $30 per head, from 6.30-9pm.

    Food during the United Nations World Yoga Day will focus on vegetarian, fresh and healthy options, including sweet potato, coriander and coconut soup, kale and quinoa salad, Vietnamese rice paper rolls and fried rice with tofu, cashew nuts and asian greens, along with plenty more. Volunteers from Kids Giving Back will be helping on the day.

    The United Nations World Yoga Day aims to focus on social activism, taking people off the mat into the world, as active participants in creating lasting change. According to OBK General Manager Greg Fisher, “We were attracted to this project because the concept of yoga - relating to peace, unity and working together for humanity, aligns perfectly with the ethos of OBK”. With this vision, OBK is a perfect partner to help.
