Coming together and sharing a meal is the most communal and binding experience in almost every place in the world. It is a powerful way to share something important and give each other nourishment. No one understands this more than the people at OzHarvest. Which is why when our CEO Larry Prosser was invited to participate in the ninth annual OzHarvest CEO CookOffTM, he jumped at the opportunity to reinvest in his community.
What is OzHarvest CEO CookOffTM?
Here, Australia’s top bosses and their teams will take to the kitchen in support of vulnerable Australians on the 25th March 2019. This year, Beyond Merchant Capital’s CEO, Larry Prosser will also don an apron in support of those who are often unseen. The 2019 goal is to raise $3 million. This will provide six million healthy meals to Australians who go without daily. Making this an event with some healthy competition and all for a hearty cause. Staff and CEOs will be paired up with Top Australian chefs. These culinary kings and queens will then guide the teams in a gourmet meal preparation, which will then be served to a room of over 1400 guests-in-need. Says Larry Prosser, “This worth-while initiative is a wonderful opportunity for community members from different walks of life to come together. Our company is constantly striving to serve others, so this is an amazing opportunity to do it with funds and food.”
