One Melbourne chef will flip burgers for 24 hours straight – and donate every dollar

Melbourne’s food truck pioneer and owner of Beatbox Kitchen, Juanita Peaches and the Taco Truck Raph Rashid will be flipping burgers for 24 hours straight to raise funds for Youth Support + Advocacy Service (YSAS) this August.

‘FLIP-A-THON’ will take place at Raph’s Beatbox Kitchen Shop on in Brunswick and will run from 11am on Saturday 17 August until 11am Sunday 18 August, with all purchases made over the 24 hours going direct to YSAS.

A limited menu will be on offer for FLIP-A-THON and will include Raph burgers, cheeseburgers, Shroom burgers and Vege supremes alongside a range of drinks. Raph will also be a running donations hotline for those who can’t make it to the event.

Raph will be joined by some of Melbourne’s best hospitality personalities and creatives to help run the till over the 24 hours, including Pat Nourse (creative director of Melbourne Food + Wine), Lucy Feagins (founder of The Design Files), skateboarder Casey Foley, Jimmy Hurston (Jimmy’s Burgers), wine expert Matt Skinner.

"As both a father and a business owner, supporting youth mental health is something which very important to me. YSAS has a range of programs including youth outreach and Headspace which offer great services to young people seeking support. By running FLIP-A-THON, it's my time to make a difference and to do something that can have direct effect," says Rashid.
