Our Big Kitchen is a registered charity, with ABN 11 149 226 568
OUR MISSION: OBK nourishes, educates, empowers and supports people in need and always with love. Last year OBK distributed over 80 000 meals to disadvantaged Australians, OBK does this through meaningful volunteering experiences.
OUR PHILOSOPHY: OBK believes in the power of giving. Through giving you receive. We offer a safe, non-judgemental environment where people from all walks of life can connect through doing good. Food and giving meals is the positive end result but the journey of how the meal was made is just as important.
OBK does this through food rescue, working closely with organisations like SecondBite and Foodbank to minimise food waste and turn fresh produce into a home cooked meal. OBK does need to also buy in ingredients, as fruit and veg is the main ingredient we rescue.
The meals are distributed to many shelters across NSW these include: Salavation Army, St Vincent’s De Paul, Lou’s Place, Mary’s House, Rough Edges, The clown Doctor, Oasis Youth Support, Youth off the streets, Wayside Chapel, Jewish House, Caretakers Cottage, Several women’s refuges, several childrens refuges, Domestic Violence shelters, The Greek orthodox Church, Redfern Community Centre, Asylum Seekers.
