What is the

CEO CookOff?

VietHarvest will host the second annual CEO CookOff event inspired by its sister organisation OzHarvest, taking place on Wednesday, 17 July 2024 in Ho Chi Minh City.

All funds raised will enable VietHarvest to expand its food rescue mission in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi with an ambition to establish a Nourishing Hub - a place where food rescue, logistics, education and engagement takes place in Ho Chi Minh City. 

This unique and magical event will bring together 40 Vietnamese and Australian business leaders who will team up and cook with 10 top chefs and serve a meal to hundreds of dinner guests from charities and social impact organisations, providing them with a magical night full of love, respect, dignity and gourmet meals. It will also highlight the issues of hunger and food waste while showcasing practical and innovative solutions.

It has raised more than $12.5 million dollars for those in need, allowing OzHarvest to deliver 25 million meals across Australia.
