It All Started First in Thailand
Scholars of Sustenance Foundation (SOS) has been serveing 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.
