We value a sense of community with an eye to making a difference where we can.
For decades, we have made it our business to get involved and give back to our many great communities, causes and charities.  We make a difference through our involvement as individuals and as a business.  We not only fundraise, but often help out with the organisation and marketing of events.

We have the perfect partnership with Foodbank. They are the largest hunger relief organisation in Australia. Both our organisations work with similar clients and can go a long way to raising awareness of the issue of hunger in Australia. Our goal is to aid in building solid relationships for Foodbank between national donors and key industry supporters.  We create the Hunger Report and in 2016 we were awarded the Foodbank Purple Lightbulb award for helping to illuminate the issue of hunger in Australia.

 

 

2017 CEO Cook Off raises $1.7m for disadvantaged Australians

 Wiley Managing Director, Tom competed in the 2017 CEO Cook Off paired with Chef, Ben Williamson from Gerard’s bistro. Together, 40 Chefs, 125 CEO’s and 1300 guests descended upon The Cutaway, Barangaroo in Sydney for the event which raised a total of $1.7m for OzHarvest.

Tom, Ben and the other CEO’s & Chefs at the CEO CookOff, prepared and served delicious meals to 1,300 vulnerable, disadvantaged or homeless Australians. The $1.7m raised will support OzHarvest’s purpose to nourish the country through food rescue, nutrition education and hospitality training for disadvantaged youth, and community engagement programs. It will also go towards responding to the critical food wastage issues facing society.


OzHarvest Founder and CEO, Ronni Kahn said the flagship fundraiser allows OzHarvest to rescue and redistribute more fresh food.
“The face of hunger is diverse and it’s never quite who you think,” she said. “For one night, CEOs, business leaders and chefs unite to make a positive impact on the lives of those less fortunate. It was truly a night to remember, full of love, humility, dignity and respect. That is the magic of the CEO CookOff.”

This year, Wiley raised $9,504 for OzHarvest. Tom said “we are incredibly grateful for the generous donations from our friends, family, subcontractors, clients and colleagues who supported us to support OzHarvest and make a difference. Every amount, no matter how big or small can make a huge difference in the life of disadvantaged Australians. The event also highlights the amount of food that goes to waste each year, a matter close to Wiley’s heart.”


Wiley continues to support OzHarvest throughout the year, if you’re interested in how you can help please contact us on 1300 385988 or connect@wiley.com.au
