Charity Cooking Team Building Activities – The Locals Loved It!

50 staff accomplished an incredible job feeding the masses. Bringing their genuine customer experience skills to cooking excellent quality meals and serving guests within the Homeless Hub community.

“The Wollongong Homeless Hub is an integral part of the Illawarra region. Helping and supporting people in crisis. Assisting various client groups. Including people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. Indigenous, refugees, new settlement, youth and those who have considerable barriers to obtaining private housing. Such as women and children fleeing domestic violence, single parent families, those recovering from drug or alcohol addiction and those living with mental health.

Clients at ‘The Hub’ are able to access multiple agencies from a single point. Computers, photocopiers, fax machines and telephones are offered free of charge to people accessing services. Community engagement officers are available for support and other support services are also available to clients.”

Chris Abbott activities coordinator at Thrill team events reports: “Providing food to the hungry, is but one component in a community based approach to reducing social issues that disadvantaged people face. The Wollongong Homeless Hub provides wonderful community based programs that really supports people in need. A one stop shop from providing the necessities of food, shelter and clothing. To Youth off the streets and facilitated work opportunities”. A quick research found that Official government data stating that 100 people are sleeping rough every night. However the real statistics on the street figure well below advertised data. Which does not include the various levels of Homelessness; Barley able to afford rent, over crowding in shared housing, conflict, domestic violence, living in a car and barely being able to make ends meet.

Thrill team building charity cook events are holistic programs. Making our community better through engaging corporate business staff to get hands on. Cooking healthy, nutrient rich, tasty meals. Serving delicious recipes with respectfulness. Meeting, sharing food and sitting down directly with the homeless and disadvantaged. Having a chat, listening with empathy in a relaxed environment. Bringing a level of normality and security into the lives of others. Investing their time, energy and resources into positive healthy benefits. I was priveledged to discuss the cooking with several homeless men. All a fun sense of humour who critiqued the meals and awarded the best meal to the Lamb Kebab team!

Thrill facilitates a large variety of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs, from our Thrill-Build-a-Bike, Tree-Planting and Bush Regeneration, Furniture for Families, Toys for Kids and partnering with Australian Animal Rescue programs.

Professionally facilitated across the Sydney Region, Parramatta, The Blue Mountains, the Southern Highlands, Wollongong, Newcastle and The Gold Coast.

CSR Programs play a vital role in the modern Business. According to CECP, the premier firm for CSR research and best practices,

The Shifting Social Contract. 84% of corporate executives believe that society expects businesses to take a more active role in environmental, social, and political issues than it did five years ago. Corporate philanthropy is one effective way to meet these new expectations.

More and more companies are choosing to engage with charity organizations as a regular part of their business life.
