Cook Up for Change

Host a Cook Up for Change this September and share a meal with friends in support of community development in Asia, Africa and the Pacific .


Every culture has it’s own traditions, beliefs, language, values, and way of living. However, they all have one thing in common, people coming together to share a meal – shared human connection.

Cook Up for Change calls on Australians to connect with friends, family and colleagues by sharing a multicultural meal together – in person or online – to support mentoring and skill development for remote communities abroad.

Come together this September and Cook Up a meal for Change!

Why host a Cook Up?

Whether it’s a special occasion, lunch with colleagues, dinner with your family, or a catch up with lifelong friends, sharing a meal together provides an opportunity for human connection.

Palms Australia’s international mentoring program provides an opportunity to create this same human connection in your local community, and across the globe. At the same time, we provide remote communities abroad with long term mentoring and skill development opportunities.

By hosting a Cook Up and raising funds this September, you will provide local people and organisations in remote communities with mentoring and skill development, improving education and employment opportunities within the community, and increasing their capacity to build a more secure and sustainable future.
