On May 22, 2019, Daily Bread Food Bank welcomed six CEOs from across the GTA to our on-site kitchen for the inaugural CEO Cook-Off!
Under the guidance of renowned Toronto chefs, Carl Heinrich of Richmond Station and Doug Penfold of Cava Restaurant, our CEOs swapped their suits for kitchen aprons and prepared dinner for 60 guests to raise funds for Daily Bread food programs.
The evening was a huge success, raising an astounding $57,580 that will help thousands of families and individuals in need across the city of Toronto.
We are so grateful to our participating chefs, Carl Heinrich and Doug Penfold for sharing their knowledge and guidance. To our energetic CEOs: Mark Andersen (Slalom Consulting), Neil Hetherington (Daily Bread Food Bank), Frank Luchetta (Pusateri’s Fine Foods), Sumit Luthra (Campbell Company of Canada), Tessa Ohlendorf (Mighty Hive) and CEO Cook-Off Winner, Andy Burgess (Steam Whistle Brewery). And of course, to each guest who came in fully committed to joining Daily Bread’s mission and the fight against hunger.
