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 organisations are increasing their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), this is an approach to sustainable development and delivers economic, social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders.
Our Big Kitchen offers organisations a very practical and tangible way for your organisation to be involved in giving back to those in need. We create a spirit of giving and selflessness that empowers change in a powerful and positive way. Through cooking and packaging meals you will take part in a meaningful team experience. Hear inspiring stories from those benefiting from the meals you have made, and bring your team together.
OBK’S CORPORATE PROGRAMS EMPOWERS INDIVIDUALS TO:
Connect and interact with team members in a meaningful way
Make a tangible difference by giving back to the community together
Engage in a wider community and connect to people from all different backgrounds
Spend quality time with colleagues by being kind to other people.
Understand others and grow compassion
Learn new skills, and have fun.
Demonstrates your organisations commitment to social responsibility in a practical way.
HOW CORPORATE PROGRAMS SUPPORT OBK:
By cooking with large numbers of volunteers, or even smaller groups we are able to make more meals and support people in need. Last year OBK made over 80 000 meals which got distributed to disadvantaged Australians. Without organisations coming in and volunteering their time this amount of meals would not have been achieved.
Our belief is through giving we empower and connect people. We hope to build a larger community of givers and by more organisations participating 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!
