RFS vs SES Mystery Box Cooking Challenge | Bega Valley

Two teams of first responder amateur chefs will face off against each other in this Mystery Box Challenge in the Bega Valley! There’s nothing wrong with a bit of friendly rivalry, as a team from the local RFS faces off against a team from the local SES to see who can stand the heat in the kitchen. The team members must work together to create the most amazing dishes from the most weird and wonderful ingredients! The winners… the first responder families who get to be entertained and then eat the dishes for dinner.

Social connection supports wellbeing in a variety of ways – helping to alleviate stress, anxiety and depression, while strengthening self esteem. This activity will create opportunities for participants to learn new things, from both the service provider, and from each other. It will help to support and strengthen existing social support networks, helping to create a sense of belonging in and between agencies.

This free wellbeing activity is for first responder families (eligibility here) from Bega Valley RFS and SES. Fortem is currently monitoring COVID guidelines closely and may reschedule this event and notify participants accordingly. Restrictions apply in line with current COVID regulations.
