Ideas

Love to cook, but not sure how to translate that into an event - below are some great "cooking" inspired fundraising ideas

  • Host a morning tea at your work, mother’s group, or another gathering. Include healthy options, such as low-fat muffins and fresh fruit.
  • Are you surrounded by early risers? Why not put on a breakfast at your work? There are many healthy breakfast options available, and there will be lots of people who will be happy to make a donation in exchange for someone else providing breakfast for them on a busy morning.
  • Do you have a favourite restaurant or café? A charity lunch or dinner is relatively easy to organise, and can generate great conversations and fundraising.
  • During the warmer months, a healthy BBQ is a great idea. Use the HF catering guidelines and provide lean meats, vegies and green salads.
  • High Tea Party. Going out for High Tea is very fashionable at the moment, so why not host your own High Tea Party and raise funds in the process? Serve specialty teas and gourmet sandwiches
  • Wine & Cheese tours. Book through one of the many companies available, or hire a bus and organise your own.
  • Everyone thinks they are a Master Chef…why not let them prove it! Host a Cook-Off at work, your local sports club, or with friends. Have an entry fee and a prize for the winner and watch the competitive streaks emerge!
  • Progressive dinner. Grab a group of friends and have a three course meal, with each course served at a different house or location. Donations can be collected at each stop.
  • A colour theme can really add to an event and there are many foods that are ‘Heart Foundation Red” – why not consider a Strawberries and Cream (low-fat, of course!) morning tea?
