Cook for Good has been built on the support of some fantastic organisations. They have shared their money, time and expertise with us as part of a long-term relationship that goes way beyond the creation of our kitchen.
Some are based in Kings Cross, and wanted to give something back in a hyperlocal way; others are organisations and people who share our foodie focus and wanted to give us a hand. Whatever their reason, we’re so grateful to have them on board.
Our favourite foodies will be supporting us with live cooking demos and other fundraising events over the coming year. Sign up for updates to get on the invite list.
