Social enterprise Two Good, which works to support domestic violence survivors, has expanded to the Melbourne market, opening a commercial kitchen at the YWCA premises in South Melbourne. The expansion allows Two Good to deliver its chef-designed soups and salads to Melbourne’s corporate market and, through a ‘buy one give one’ model, provide meals directly to local women’s refuges.
Two Good’s salads and soups are designed by some of Australia’s leading chefs, including Ben Shewry, Andrew McConnell, Matt Moran, Peter Gilmore, Neil Perry, Maggie Beer and Kylie Kwong.
The Melbourne commercial kitchen, located within a domestic violence safe house specifically for women over 50, also employs and trains residents to make the food Two Good sells. This training is part of Two Good’s innovative Work Work program which aims to rebuild confidence and empower women and get them back into the work force.
Two Good founder Rob Caslick says: “Taking Two Good to Melbourne has been a long-held dream for us. We already have some of Australia’s best Melbourne-based chefs providing recipes and our new South Melbourne commercial kitchen allows us to deliver our meals and catering services to Melbourne customers and corporates, as well as train more women in our Work Work program.”
Attica’s Ben Shewry, says: "My belief is that all good business is based around contributing to society, not just taking. We have been proud to support Two Good and are humbled to be a very small part of an organisation that has served more than 40,000 free meals to women in refuges across Sydney and Melbourne."
Two Good meals and other products are available to purchase online at www.twogood.com.au. Melbourne meal deliveries start on Tuesday 23 October.

About Two Good
Two Good began life as an organic soup kitchen at St Canice’s church in Kings Cross, and has expanded to sell restaurant quality salads and soups, which have been designed by some of Australia’s leading chefs. The meals are made in Two Good’s Eveleigh commercial kitchen, put into jars and delivered directly to offices and businesses by delivery partner Deliveroo. The business model that Two Good uses is 'buy one, give one', so with every meal sold, another is donated to a domestic violence shelter. Many corporate offices have got involved with regular weekly orders, and Two Good has delivered more than 40,000 meals to refuges and shelters since business began in late 2016. A national campaign sponsored by Charter Hall Retail in July 2018 provided an additional 20,000 meals to refuges throughout Australia.
