Our Big Kitchen
At Our Big Kitchen, they believe in the power of the kitchen to bring people together and create lasting positive change in our world.
Many organisations are increasing their CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility), this is an approach to sustainable development and delivers economic, social and environmental benefits for all stakeholders.
Our Big Kitchen offers organisations a very practical and tangible way for your organisation to be involved in giving back to those in need. They create a spirit of giving and selflessness that empowers change in a powerful and positive way. Through cooking and packaging meals your staff will take part in a meaningful team building experience. Hear inspiring stories from those benefiting from the meals you have made, and bring your team together.
Our Big Kitchen’s Corporate Programs Empower Individuals & Teams To:
– Connect and interact with team members in a meaningful way
– Make a tangible difference by giving back to the community together
– Engage in a wider community and connect to people from all different backgrounds
– Spend quality time with colleagues by being kind to other people.
– Understand others and grow compassion
– Learn new skills, and have fun.
– Demonstrate your organisation’s commitment to social responsibility in a practical way.
How Corporate Programs Support Our Big Kitchen:
By cooking with large numbers of volunteers, or even smaller groups they are able to make more meals and support people in need. Last year OBK made over 80 000 meals which got distributed to disadvantaged Australians. Without organisations coming in and volunteering their time this amount of meals would not have been achieved.
Their belief is through giving they empower and connect people. They hope to build a larger community of givers and by more organisations participating they hope to spread this giving belief.
Running a large commercial kitchen and a charity does have costs. By having these corporate programs it contributes to OBK’s running costs. These programs are how they hope to stay sustainable as a charity and continue to grow.
Designed to help grow the next generation of empathetic leaders, Thread Together invites corporations to bring their staff and to the Thread Together warehouse and community centre for a leadership and team-building workshop and clothes sorting activity.
The program focuses on fostering kindness through leadership and delivers an understanding of how a charity operates. Being involved in charitable work helps gainfully-employed corporate staff to understand their own privilege, and the responsibility it brings. It demonstrates that showing compassion for others makes them better and stronger team members and leaders. It fosters an attitude that one’s personal success can be that much sweeter by taking a small part of time out of your life to consider and ACT to help others.

Barque James Craig is rightly famous around the world. She is Sydney’s only 19th Century square rigger (or Tall Ship) and her incredible restoration to full sailing condition was recognised in 2003 by the World Ship Trust’s award of their prestigious Maritime Medal. Her restoration cost almost $A30 million and took nearly 40 years to complete after she was rescued from Recherche Bay in far southern Tasmania.
This beautiful ship regularly goes to sea with up to 80 passengers and is open for public inspection at her berth at Wharf 7, 58 Pirrama Road, Pyrmont.
But most significantly for this page, she is also available for charter, for functions, and for corporate team building activities.
She is a true restoration, not a replica. Other Australian tall ships are either replicas such as Bark Endeavour, ships built in the 20th century such as Southern Swan (previously Our Svanen), Soren Larsen and One and All, static museum exhibits such as Polly Woodside in Melbourne, or abandoned unsalvageable wrecks, such as Santiago in Adelaide.
James Craig is a representative of the great sailing vessels from a bygone age, the ships which moved produce from the emerging colonies and brought manufactured goods to our shores. She is a tangible link between modern Australia and the days of sail during which this country developed into nationhood.
Australia is one of the very few nations to have the good fortune to have a vessel from a bygone age sailing in our waters, and for this we are the envy of maritime nations around the globe. James Craig is hailed as a model of all that is expected of a sensitive, authentic conservation, a symbol of what can be done to preserve our heritage.
In 2003 she was awarded the World Ships Trust’s International Maritime Heritage Medal for authentic restoration. She joins a select band of restored ships throughout the world, including the Mary Rose (UK 1510), Vasa (Sweden 1627), USS Constitution (USA 1797), Great Britain (UK 1843) and Cutty Sark (UK 1869), which have received this honour.
James Craig is owned by the Sydney Heritage Fleet, a community based, non-profit organisation dedicated to the preservation of Australia’s maritime heritage. The Fleet operates what is thought to be the largest fleet of operational heritage ships and boats anywhere in the world.
