Help our MasterChef Rosalie reach her fundraising goal
In a few weeks, CME’s Director of Communications and Campaigns Rosalie Cobai, will be taking part in Meal Makers, an annual event run by Foodbank WA where WA business leaders put their cooking prowess to the test and fundraise their way to providing an incredible 300,000 meals for West Australians in need. With the effects of COVID-19 still being felt, many families are facing reduced income, high rent increases or eviction. Foodbank WA has seen the demand for food rising by 50 per cent.
As one of just 30 Meal Makers, Rosalie will be channelling her inner Nigella Lawson alongside renowned local chef Kate Lamont at Lamonts Bishop House on 16 August to create thousands of meals for vulnerable groups like seniors, the unemployed and homeless, and those living on a low income. Foodbank WA also provides a range of healthy eating education programs to more than 5000 students and 1000 adults across WA.
Any donation you can give towards helping Rosalie reach her fundraising goal of $5000 would be appreciated. Every dollar donated provides 2 meals. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.

How Ken went back to his Kalgoorlie roots…and then kicked on
Ken Brinsden was born in Sydney and went to the same NSW high school that produced golf legend Jack Newton and Icehouse frontman Iva Davies.
