We're helping The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and UKHarvest raise £2 million to transform lives and cook a ‘thank-you’ banquet for 100s of everyday heroes. It’s called the CEO CookOff. It’s going to be epic. Posted by Amanda, Wednesday 1st Feb

I'm participating in the 2017 CEO CookOff, in partnership with the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and UKHarvest. This incredible fundraising event will see the nation’s top CEOs and senior business leaders join forces with first-class chefs to cook a banquet for 100s of everyday heroes who work in our schools and hospitals, as a thank you for their amazing work.

Between now and the night itself, we’re also working towards an amazing £2 million fundraising target, which will be used to tackle food waste and provide food education to people throughout the UK. The funds raised will be donated to food waste charity UKHarvest and will be used by the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation to support food education schemes.

I'd love your support.

A big thank you to My Sponsors

The real heroes who are kindly supporting me achieve my goal.
