Our People

Food is a common denominator across all barriers prejudice and judgement. As humans we all love food and a kitchen is the heart of our homes. What better way to connect with people through sharing and learning together in a big community kitchen.

We are proud to have so many amazing people who have helped grow and shape OBK today. Sponsors, staff, volunteers, deputy board and community workers all working together to help our community.

OBK is governed by an independent Advisory Board which includes representatives from the business world, legal profession and community organisations.​


  •  Richard Andrews - Chair

  •  Rabbi Dr Dovid Slavin - Founder

  •  Russell Levert


The purpose of the Advisory Board is to provide a corporate governance structure within the framework of a community not-for-profit organisation. The board provides oversight and guidance to OBK management.
