I felt motivated to organise a cook-in event at Our Big Kitchen (OBK), so that my members could experience a feel-good "give something back" activity.The cook-in at OBK, exceeded all of my expectations in terms of a social and interactive activity. Everyone was smiling and sharing warm and friendly conversations, while working side-by-side chopping up ingredients and preparing meals. I think the most striking element of the cook-in was seeing the stack of meals packaged up and ready to send off. A most heart-warming feeling!
At the end of the cook-in, we gathered in a local coffee shop, buzzing and feeling great that our contribution would soon be reaching those less fortunate than ourselves.
I fully support the good work that Zulu and OBK do for Sydney's community, long may it continue. I hope to spread the word and get more good people involved. If you only get involved in one charitable activity this year, make sure its a cook-in with Zulu at OBK!!! - Neil Scott, 35+ Meetup group organiser
