About The Event


OzHarvest has announced the postponement of its flagship fundraising event the CEO CookOff, due to take place at Sydney’s Carriageworks on Monday 30 March.  In the wake of the ongoing public health threat from the Coronavirus, the event will be postponed until later in the year. Read our full statement, from our founder and CEO Ronni Kahn AO, here. 


The 2020 CEO CookOff will be a festival of hope and joy, embodying the community spirit of Australia. With the support of our CEOs and chefs, we will bring together our charities, as well as those who have been impacted by recent fires and droughts to enjoy a fine dining feast with world class musical talent taking to the stage.

In the lead up to the event registrants raise funds in support of OzHarvest, with the goal of raising $3 million, which will provide 6 million meals to people going without all around Australia. On the night, participants are grouped into teams and paired with celebrated chefs from Australia’s top kitchens. Each team prepares a meal under the guidance of their chef and serves up those beautiful meals to our wonderful guests. As a participant, it is an opportunity to share a meal with a community that you would not often have an opportunity to break bread with.
