Following on from the Foodbank Challenge held on the Channel 7 reality television series, My Kitchen Rules in 2017, Foodbank SA has been undertaking our very own MKR style Cooking challenges. These challenges have included the involvement of Foodbank SA Ambassador and former MKR contestant, Gemma Burdon. Gemma who won the Foodbank Challenge during her time on the show has been able to provide first-hand insight into the challenge and the reality series pressure cooker.

Last month, Foodbank hosted a group of Adelaide United Fans for the MKR Style Cooking Challenge they were joined by AUFC player Vince Lia and Nova 919 Breakfast Radio Show member, Jarrod Walsh. Hosted again by Gemma Burdon, the event was a huge success, with some great meals being whipped up by the teams. Apparently one of the desserts was rated a 10/10, well done to team Jarrod!

The Foodbank MKR Style Cooking Challenges provides an opportunity for 2 teams of 3 to compete in the kitchen (a total of 6 guests). The aim is to shop and utilise foods that are available in the Foodbank Food Hub and to create a 2 course budget meal within 45 minutes! The teams then sit down to enjoy their meal while the ‘experts’ judge the end products, particularly on their suitability for families in need.
