VietHarvest Cookoff 2023

I have joined the first-ever CEO CookOff Vietnam to raise funds for VietHarvest to Nourish Our Community in Vietnam. I will be cooking alongside 10 of Australia and Vietnam's top chefs and other business leaders. We will be serving up meals to charity and social impact leaders and packaging up meals for those in need.

VietHarvest was established on 5 June 2020 however Covid delayed its official launch until June 2022. Currently operating in Hanoi and expanding to Ho Chi Minh City, VietHarvest collects quality surplus food from commercial food businesses and delivers it, direct and free of charge, to charities that help feed underserved communities and individuals. 

With your generous support, we can make a big difference and help to protect people and the planet.

The CEO CookOff brings together 50 Business leaders and top chefs to raise funds for this critical organisation.
