It All Started First in Thailand
Scholars of Sustenance Foundation (SOS) has been serving to the communities in need in Thailand since the beginning of its operation in 2016 in Bangkok and 2019 in Phuket. We strongly value food equity where everyone can have fair access to good food and manage surplus food in the way to prevent good food from being wasted to the landfills.
Until now, SOS has been redistributing nutritious food to vulnerable communities for more than 5 million meals by rescuing surplus ingredients and food products from hotel chains, supermarkets, suppliers within Bangkok Metropolitan and Phuket areas every day.
FOOD RESCUE PROGRAM
A Systematic Approach to Deliver Good Quality Surplus Food to People in Need.
We send trucks to rescue surplus food from various food-related industries such as hotels, retailers, suppliers, and manufacturers 7 days a week with a cold-chain logistic system. After a food safety inspection, surplus food is donated to orphanages, shelters, low-income communities.
RESCUE KITCHEN PROGRAM
Serving Nutritious Meals for the Needy.
More than rescuing food, we want to serve warm meals to the community during the trying time. We believe that a warm meal not only satiated the physical need in humans but empowering their souls to fight for a better day tomorrow. Our rescue kitchen program established a partnership with community volunteers to cook surplus food together and distribute nutritious meals, freshly cooked food to the community members in different locations every five days a week. A meal cooked by the community for the community people
