Our Big Kitchen distributes food baskets across the broad community including the Australian military serving in Afghanistan.

Kings players Anatoly Bose, Graeme Dann, Martin Iti and Tanner Kerry had to stoop low to discuss baking techniques with children from local schools.

Executive director of Our Big Kitchen Rabbi Dovid Slavin, told J-Wire: “As a community kitchen, we feel that it is important to join the effort to guide children towards healthier eating options to battle the health problems associated with childhood obesity.”

The message being promoted is that whatever you eat – you should always look for the healthiest option.

General Manager of the Sydney Kings, David Wolf, said that the Sydney Kings are determined not only to thrill game lovers with superior performance, but also take a leadership role on healthy eating.

“We want kids to understand that to do well in sport and life generally, a good exercise regime and an understanding of healthy eating are equally important, Mr. Wolf said. “It is for that reason that our players have taken up the challenge to join a group of kids to create the healthier cookie” Mr Wolf said.

Our Big Kitchen is part of the Yeshiva Centre in Bondi.
