Buying your lunch from Two Good is an effortless act of goodwill. The initiative works on a buy-one, give-one basis. Your lunch is delivered mid-morning and an identical meal is donated to a domestic-violence shelter.
The Sydney-based social start-up has just expanded to Melbourne. It’s also launched “Two Good Twosday”, for which London-based entrepreneur and chef Yotam Ottolenghi and Melbourne chef Andrew McConnell are contributing two original recipes.
Every Tuesday you can order either Ottolenghi’s poached-chicken and chargrilled-zucchini salad ($13) or Andrew McConnell’s cracked wheat and freekah salad ($14) via Deliveroo. For every salad sold, one is donated to local domestic-violence shelters The Safe Futures Foundation and St. Mary’s House of Welcome.
“Essentially someone pays for a beautiful lunch and we get to provide delicious food for those who may not be able to afford it or [who are] unable to get it for themselves,” says Two Good co-founder Rob Caslick.
“The company’s goal is to have more community gardens, our actual goal is to be a national provider to domestic-violence [shelters] across the country,” he says.
To place your order, visit the Deliveroo website or download the Deliveroo App.
