Corporate Team Building
Volunteering as a Team
At Our Big Kitchen, we believe in the power of the kitchen to bring people together and create lasting positive change in our world.
Many companies are reshuffling their agendas to place more emphasis on CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). This is a great approach to sustainable development, bringing with it economic, social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders.
Our Big Kitchen offers organisations a very practical way to get their teams involved in volunteering and helping those in need. We create a spirit of giving and selflessness that encourages and empowers change in a powerful and positive way. Through cooking and packaging meals, your team will take part in a meaningful experience. You will hear inspiring stories from those benefiting from the meals you have made, giving you a feeling of humility and fulfilment that is otherwise hard to come by.
OBK’S CORPORATE PROGRAMS EMPOWERS INDIVIDUALS TO:
Reconnect and interact with team members in a meaningful and memorable way.
Make a tangible difference by giving back to the community together.
Engage with the wider community and connect with people of a variety of backgrounds.
Reconnect with values such as kindness, empathy and compassion.
Learn new skills and have fun.
Assist in fulfilling their organisation's commitment to social responsibilities.
See the value of their volunteering by getting a taster of what they've prepared for those in need.
HOW CORPORATE PROGRAMS SUPPORT OBK:
By cooking with large numbers of volunteers - and even smaller groups - we are able to make more meals and support people in need. Last year OBK made over 120,000 meals which got distributed to disadvantaged Australians. Without organisations coming in and volunteering their time such a figure would not have been achieved. Our belief is that through giving we empower and connect people. We hope to build a larger community of givers and, by having more organisations participate, we hope to spread this giving belief.
Running a large commercial kitchen and a charity does have costs. By having these corporate programs it contributes to OBK’s running costs. These programs are how we hope to stay sustainable as a charity and continue to grow.

"What a fantastic corporate volunteer experience for the Morningstar team! I recommend everyone who is thinking of implementing a corporate volunteer day definitely contact OBK! We had a fantastic time, being able to give our team a meaningful way to spend time together, and give back to the community."
