The Philanthropic Foodie is an innovative philanthropic think tank based in Sydney. We conjure creative ways to embrace inspired culture while raising awareness and funds for community minded projects. Our maiden voyage fuses Sydney’s cult food personalities and establishments with Australian Of the Year nominee Father Chris Riley’s Youth Off The Streets.
Sydney food culture is thriving as never seen before. Australia is literally ill with a love of fine food. A quick flick across the television confirms this prognosis. Seven-year-old children preparing a degustation that rivals Tetsuya would have once baffled the average foodie but is now accepted as the norm!
The Philanthropic Foodie saw it fit to celebrate this Sydney food renaissance, uniting amazing Sydney individuals such as Christine Manfield (Universal, Darlinghurst), Jarod Ingersoll (Danks Street Depot, Cotton Duck), Will Young (Campos), the Palumbo brothers (Gelato Messina), David Mcguinness (Bourke Street Bakery), Simon Johnson, the Harris family (Harris Farm Markets) and more.
The idea was conceived to create a unique Christmas gift, offering the ultimate snap shot of Sydney’s cult culinary elite. Most importantly, while devising something so innately opulent and indulgent, the perfect karmic offset would be that all profits be given to Sydney’s forefront homeless charity Youth Off The Streets.
Our inspiration is simple. Live well, give back.
