On Friday 11 December the Left Field Team snuck out of the office a little early to celebrate the year that was. Keeping in theme with our name, we wanted to do something a little “Left Field” for our get together.
In line with our company values and in the spirit of this time of year, we wanted to give something back to the community. We decided to participate in a fantastic
“Cooking for a Cause” session put on by OzHarvest.
Our team enjoyed preparing meals for Brisbane’s homeless and marginalised in a combined cooking workshop and team bonding activity with the main focus being helping to feed people in the local community. OzHarvest representatives hosting the afternoon educated us on food waste and food insecurity, and shared with us the inspiring OzHarvest story and explained the role they play in the community.
We left with smiling faces, new cooking skills and a broadened appreciation for the role of volunteers and services in our local community. I think this will be an afternoon we will all remember for some time to come. It was a wonderful experience to share as a team and a great way to tie off 2015!
