Corporate Team Building That Makes a Difference

For Sydney-based organisations looking for a team building event with a difference, SecondBite’s Meals that Matter with Our Big Kitchen (OBK) offers an engaging experience, focused on giving back to the community.

A typical session involves team members working together to prepare and cook 200 meals for individuals and families in need. Your staff will learn about food insecurity in Australia, the work SecondBite does to address this, the people we support, and will share a meal that they have created together.


  • Using food rescued by SecondBite and complemented by other donated and purchased produce, your teams will cook meals at Our Big Kitchen under the guidance of OBK staff and volunteers.
  • Food that is cooked and prepared then gets packaged into fresh, healthy, individually portioned meals.
  • Meals are co-branded with your logo, and SecondBite delivers them to community food programs in the Sydney area, supporting individuals and families in need.
  • We finish with a shared lunch, and a chance to hear about the work we do and ask questions.

Your teams have the opportunity to participate in a fun team-building event that makes a real difference to the must vulnerable in our community.

“Sometimes we feel too busy to focus on the things that really matter. A very humbling experience and a great opportunity to bond with work colleagues.”

Nick Mavraganis – Area Manager, Coles Liquor, talking about the Meals that Matter pilot
