Penny cooks with Jamie Oliver!
On 21 March 2017, Penny will be donning an apron for an epic night of cooking and fundraising. She is taking part in the first ever UK CEO CookOff – which will see 100 senior business leaders join forces with 30 top chefs, in one enormous kitchen! The aim is to raise £2 million to tackle food waste, obesity and malnutrition, through the work of the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and UKHarvest.
They’ll be serving a banquet to hundreds of everyday heroes from our schools and hospitals as a thank you for their amazing work with children and patients.
There are 13 million kids in this country, and one third of them are obese. The funds raised from the CEO CookOff will go towards food education schemes in schools, via the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation, and will also be used to save surplus food from going to landfill (and redistribute it to those in need), through the work of charity UKHarvest.
It’s a fantastic and ambitious event, which could make a real difference to the lives of millions of people. Penny has pledged to raise £10,000 and we'd love your support to help her smash that target!
