Jessica Stewart

Executive Director at Department of Family & Community Services (FACS)
Participating in their 1st 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!

My Bio

I am an Executive Director at the NSW Department of Family and Community Services. At work, my team and I provide evidence and data insights to inform policy and practice in areas such as homelessness, social housing, early intervention for vulnerable children and families and child protection. The CEO CookOff is a great opportunity for me to connect with people who access our services. On a personal side, I grew up in Sydney in a big family and I’m passionate about making a difference in my community, supporting people who may not have the same support from family and friends. I’m excited to be part of the CEO CookOff and believe sharing a meal is such an important way to bring people together.
