James Metcalfe

Managing director at JRM Hospitality
Participating in their 2nd CEO CookOff


I'm helping OzHarvest raise $3,000,000 to feed those in need in the OzHarvest CEO CookOff

I'm participating in OzHarvest's 2019 CEO CookOff, where top CEOs, chefs and companies work together to make a difference to Australia’s most vulnerable and reduce food waste.

We'd love your support in helping our organisation reach our fundraising goal! Every $1 donated to OzHarvest means they can deliver 2 meals to those in need.

Watch the video to see what this means to the people OzHarvest helps.

Stay tuned for the journey!


JRM Social Series #007 - EAT + DRINK + GIVE BACK

Acclaimed Chef & JRM Hospitality CEO James Metcalfe will be holding a ticketed fundraising event at his new venue Saint George Dining to raise funds for OzHarvest's CEO CookOff™. Guests can enjoy an intimate evening of food and drinks on the 18th March so he can reach his $10,000 goal for the CEO CookOff™.

We will join over 150 top business leaders and corporate teams at OzHarvest’s flagship fundraiser, CEO CookOff™ on Monday,
25 March 2019 at Sydney’s Royal Hall of Industries. James Metcalfe will cook alongside some of Australia’s most talented chefs, including Neil Perry, Matt Moran and Colin Fassnidge to create and serve a gourmet dinner for 1,400 special guests from Sydney’s most vulnerable communities.

“A big part of what JRM Hospitality do is give back through our annual JRM Social Series Events. Our next dinner is on the 18th March at our new venue "Saint George Dining" said James Metcalfe.

OzHarvest Founder and CEO, Ronni Kahn says the stakes are high as the fundraising target this year is $3 million, but thanks to the competitive nature of CEOs she is confident the goal will be reached.

“The CEO CookOff™ offers a unique opportunity to demonstrate leadership with compassion and purpose and to break bread with some of the most vulnerable people in our community. With over 4 million people in Australia experiencing food insecurity each year, this event allows the business world to address this serious issue which often goes unseen.”

This life-changing event has made an incredible impact by raising over $9 million in the last seven years, allowing OzHarvest to deliver 18 million meals to those who need it most.
