Charter Hall launches national campaign “Good food for good”

Charter Hall supports Two Good Co. through the purchase of 7,700 copies of the Two Good Cookbook Two, to giveaway at its retail shopping centres

Charter Hall Retail partners with a range of community groups who share its goal of fostering a greater sense of belonging in every Australian community. To support this aspiration, Charter Hall Retail have once again joined forces with social enterprise Two Good Co. through a national campaign “Good food for good”.

One in four women in Australia experience domestic violence at some point, and many of them end up in refuges while they work through this very challenging time in their lives; and it is these women that Two Good Co. are dedicated to supporting.

Charter Hall will support the efforts of Two Good Co. through the purchase of 7,700 copies of the Two Good Cookbook Two, to giveaway at its retail shopping centres across Australia.

For each cookbook that is gifted to shoppers by Charter Hall, a percentage of profits is reinvested into creating employment hours for Two Good Co.’s ‘Work Work’ program. This program provides life changing training, skills and employment to women seeking refuge in domestic violence shelters within the community.

Two Good Co. founder, Rob Caslick, says: “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Charter Hall to raise the awareness of domestic violence in regional areas, and to take our message and work beyond Australia’s largest cities. The funds from the 7,700 cookbooks, will go directly to supporting women with 2,000 hours in our ‘Work Work’ program. The program not only provides a platform for women to rebuild their self-worth and financial independence, but enables us to continue delivering wholesome, beautiful meals to women’s shelters across Australia, with over 200,000 delivered to date.”

To drive further awareness and active partnership, Charter Hall is inviting their employees across Australia to put their hands up and volunteer more than 1,500 hours of their time collectively.

Charter Hall Retail CEO, Ben Ellis, says: “As an owner and manager of convenience-based shopping centres Australia-wide, we take our responsibility of giving back seriously. Two Good Co. is doing extraordinary work in supporting vulnerable women through the ‘Work Work’ program, and creating a sense of belonging for these women. We’re honoured to be inviting all Charter Hall employees to get behind this campaign, as part of our Pledge 1% volunteering commitment.”

Until 24th March 2022 (or while stocks last), Charter Hall shopping centres will be inviting shoppers to present their receipts when they spend $30 at a specialty store and $50 at a major store to receive one of the Two Good Cookbook Two purchased by Charter Hall.

Featuring a beautiful selection of delicious recipes and heart-felt stories, the cookbook is more than just good food. It supports vulnerable women of domestic violence as they rebuild their independence.
