Atul Kochhar at Jamie Oliver’s UK CEO CookOff
Dear friends and colleagues,
On 21 March 2017, I will be donning my apron for an epic night of cooking and fundraising. I’m 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.
We’ll be serving a banquet to everyday heroes from our schools and hospitals as a thank you for their amazing work with children and patients. They will also be joined by special guests from each of the companies represented by the cooking CEOs. Plus, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan will be opening the night and HRH the Duchess of Cornwall will be making a special appearance.
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 (instead, being redistributed to those in need), via UKHarvest.
It’s a fantastic and ambitious event, which could make a real difference to the lives of millions of people. I’d love your support! To find out more about the event or donate to these amazing causes, please head to: ceocookoff.co.uk
Many thanks for your support, it really means a lot.
