Don't feel bad if you're not the type to be organised enough to bring lunch to work, because Two Good has your lunch sorted. The buy one, give one initiative launched in Sydney earlier this year to great feedback, and Two Good's launch in Melbourne will very likely change the work lunch situation for city workers.
The buy one, give one system works out so that for every lunch sold, another one will be donated to Melbourne domestic violence shelters The Safe Futures and St Mary's House of Welcome. Two Good's salads in jars pack some serious punch ; they're made from recipes by big name chefs and Melbourne's first menu of salads have been devised by Andrew McConnell and salad king Yotam Ottolenghi. Right now you can choose from McConnell's cracked wheat and freekeh salad ($13) that you might recognise from Cumulus Inc, and Ottolenghi's healthy poached chicken and chargrilled zucchini salad ($14). Deliveroo has taken on the task of delivering the lunches to Melbourne CBD, Southbank, East Melbourne, and Docklands.
Two Good's aim is to offer nutritious, lovingly-made meals to disadvantaged people who rely on the services of shelters and soup kitchens. Currently the salads are made in a catering kitchen, but once the Melbourne operation settles Two Good founders Rob Caslick and Cathal Flaherty aim to employ women from the shelters they serve. Seeing the success of Two Good's Sydney operation, where they managed to serve more than twenty shelters and soup kitchens across the city, we're glad that Two Good has made its way down to Melbourne.
