Charity Mystery Box Challenge team building activity

You’re given only 2 hours to cook your best dish using the ingredients found in your mystery box. Are you up for the challenge?



A 2 hour cooking challenge where you turn fresh, surplus food into nourishing meals for visitors of a Homeless Centre with a team building event full of fun, rivalry and a whole lotta heart..


Once teams arrive, there will be a housekeeping and safety briefing first. Each team is presented with your own mystery box that contains fresh fruits and vegetables.  You’ll also be given protein, dairy and all dry store ingredients that you can use for your recipes. Your Teams are to make as much food as you can. When the given 2 hours is up, each team is judged. You will then get to sit down, eat and drink (BYO).


After you have finished eating, the rest of the food is packed into takeaway containers. These will be delivered to the homeless centre the next day with the opportunity of two members from the winning team to assist with this.
