Most of us enjoy a night out sampling great food, but doesn’t it make it better knowing that the proceeds will be going to feed a family in the community? That’s what you’ll find at Eat 2 Feed TO events. The first event takes place on September 5, 2014 at The Depanneur Restaurant in Toronto. Eat 2 Feed TO is a series of events that will take place throughout the year to help fight hunger in Toronto. With each meal purchased, Eat 2 Feed TO will donate a meal in Toronto with the help of Second Harvest.
Eat 2 Feed TO is the initiative of GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD founder Richa Gupta and Executive Chef Katherine Sowden. The evenings will feature world cuisine made with GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD sauces and spreads.
GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD believes food should be made with only real ingredients and should be consumed fresh. They also believe the goal of a business is more than just the pursuit of profit. Their foods are handmade in Toronto using fresh, whole and mostly organic ingredients with no additives, preservatives, powders, extracts or concentrates.

Richa Gupta launched GOOD FOOD FOR GOOD after experiencing immense dissatisfaction with the current food system. She felt that today’s packaged food compromises quality for convenience. Richa started the company with the vision to make a difference in the world by offering good food to people who can afford it and donating food to people who cannot.
