Urban Seed Kitchens

Corporate Team building

Creating beautiful meals from surplus food to feed people in need

The Urban Seed Kitchens is a collaboration between GoodInc, The Big Umbrella, food rescue companies around Melbourne supported by Walker Corporation at Collins Square.

It’s keys goals and activities are:

  • Deliver meals to those in need.
  • Transform food into beautifully-cooked restaurant quality meals
  • Rescue good quality surplus food
  • Australians throw out $8 billion of food every year.
  • 2 million people still rely on food relief every year.

Nearly 90% of support agencies reported not having enough food to meet total demand.

At Urban Seed kitchens we can provide unique team building opportunities to Corporate Australia.

Urban Seeds Kitchen will educate your team about the work we do in the community, the issue of food waste, food security and homelessness in Australia while making direct contact and serving beautiful fresh meals to those in need. You will also learn simple and practical cooking tips that can be used at home.

Your team will be working with a professional chef in a commercial kitchen and be given a first-hand unique insight into the world of food rescue.

From stove to plate your team then has the opportunity to participate in ‘A Real Meal” and personally deliver your cooking creations to those on the streets in need of real meal and some real care and compassion.
