Noma Australia has announced that its final dinner service, to be held on 2 April, will be a fundraising event in support of OzHarvest and MAD.

The last 15 tables to the sold-out t 10 week residency at Barangaroo in Sydney will be made available via an online auction that will open on 13 March and close at 8pm on 23 March. Tables will be auctioned off as whole tables only, with tables of two, four, six and eight available.

The starting price for a table of two is $1,500.

Guests at the final dinner will receive the complete Noma Australia tasting menu, pre-dinner aperitif, and the option of either the alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage pairing.

Chef Rene Redzepi said “Since announcing that we were coming to Sydney back in July, we have thrown around ideas as to what we could do for our final service. We always knew it should be a special night for our guests. It is also an opportunity for us to give back in a small way, a chance to raise money and recognise the work being done by our friends at OzHarvest and MAD, and to celebrate the welcome we’ve received and the new friendships that we have made throughout our Australian adventure.”

MAD is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to build a community of cooks, purveyors, thinkers, and food enthusiasts “to create a better world through a better meal”, while OzHarvest is a food rescue organisation which collects surplus food from foodservice businesses and distributes it to people in need, while also preventing it from ending up as landfill.

Ronni Kahn, founder and CEO of OzHarvest, said “OzHarvest has been supported by top chefs in Australia since we began. It is a true honour for our organisation to be recognised by Rene Redzepi and to be chosen as one of the supported causes … Those funds donated to OzHarvest will allow us to deliver more meals to more people in need, save food from landfill and provide nutrition education to vulnerable people.”

At the completion of the auction, successful bidders will be contacted by Noma Australia to confirm their winning bid.
