Arc Infrastructure CEO Murray Cook was happy to don his chef’s hat again in October to take part in Foodbank WA’s Meal Makers event, which sees WA business leaders put their cooking prowess to the test and fundraise their way to providing 250,000 meals for West Australians in need. This year’s event raised an incredible $125,211.
Highly-acclaimed Wildflower Head Chef Matthew Sartori was on hand to guide the Meal Makers through creating a seafood dish, before they spent time in the Foodbank WA community kitchen.
Foodbank WA provides over 6.1 million meals a year to those in need, with donations used in vital food relief programs such as community dining halls, mobile soup vans, emergency hampers and school breakfast programs.

alone collected $5,750 for the charity - the equivalent of around 11,500 meals for those experiencing food insecurity.
The 2020 Meal Makers were mindful to adhere to COVID-19 prevention measures put in place this year.
Murray said he enjoyed his time spent giving back to Foodbank WA, which supports communities living around Arc’s network footprint
“I was thankful to represent the business and do my small part in raising awareness of the food insecurity tens of thousands of West Australians face every day,” Murray said.
“Foodbank WA provides food and groceries to over 400 registered charities that offer emergency food assistance to people in need.
“Thank you to everyone who donated to Foodbank WA through my Meal Makers page.”
