Project Of The Month — March 2017

TWO GOOD

Ten years ago three mates started cooking a BBQ for the homeless and marginalised in Sydney’s Kings Cross. Once a week they wheeled a BBQ past all the fancy Darlinghurst restaurants to Rough Edges Cafe, creatively calling themselves “Three Boys and a BBQ” to serve up healthy food and conversations. Next they decided to up their game and create Australia’s first organic soup kitchen at St Canice’s Kitchen in Kings Cross. In June ’15, Rob and Cathal, both working as engineers, decided to scale up the soup kitchen by using the “Buy One, Give One” model. For every healthy meal they sell to the public, they provided a similar healthy meal to a local domestic violence refuge. They now work with leading chefs to create awesome lunches in a jar delivered to your door.

Two Good now train and employ women from domestic violence refuges and work to build their skills, self-confidence, independence and employment opportunities. This month our StreetFunder donations will go towards building capacity of Two Good, to help to provide over 400 healthy meals and employment and life opportunities to women and children in refuges in Sydney and Melbourne.
