The Two Good business is based off the 'Eat One, Treat One' model, where for every meal purchased, the team donate an identical meal to a local women's refuge. Not only are they giving back through donating food, but Two Good seek to employ women from the shelters they serve to help give them a leg up into the work force. Over and above their community work, the food is great with top Australian Chefs getting involved and providing the recipes.
