Systematic Approach on Food Waste Prevention Discussion
The unrevealed successful story of food waste prevention cooperation between partners and SOS, the first food rescue foundation in Thailand, is disclosed here for all participants who want to know how we systematically prevent surplus food from becoming food waste. This panel talks about a systematic approach to food waste prevention. All panelists shared the same concern that there should be more organizations with their aims and operations like SOS because of the lack thereof, the problem of food waste can never truly be extinguished.
Encoring the motion for
necessary steps toward better Thailand
ZERO SUMMIT 2022 is a sustainable summit focusing on two pillars: Food Waste and Food Insecurity. Scholars of Sustenance Foundation would like to encore our mission and encourage you to join us in taking all necessary steps to REGENERATING and RECOVERING. Join us to learn on how can Thailand take a progressive step towards a sustainable society by 2030!
REGENERATIVE AND RECOVERY FUTURE
Sustainability and Circular practices are no longer sufficient for the world’s environment. Humanity has spent so much of our natural resources more than we can sustain the current demand. For the future generation to thrive, we must find a way to regenerate new resources, practices, knowledge, and innovation, and recover what we have used in the past. Join us in learning from the industry experts and key opinion leaders from food and non-profit industries on how to achieve such an ambitious goal!

Decoding the Food Bank Initiative - A lesson to learn for Thailand
Foodbank is a common buzzword in making an effort to relieve hunger in the world. But how can we establish an effective and efficient foodbank in Thailand? This panel will help us understand what does it really take to create a food bank and explore all potentials for Thailand to set up its first national food bank in the country. This panel will allow NGOs, Government and international agencies to explain why food banks are so important and share their knowledge of creating them. Our speakers will share their success and challenges, using it for Thailand to learn as it prepares to establish the foodbank soon!

Systematizing Food Surplus Donation - A Solution for Sustainable Development
Food manufacturers and retailers will come together to share their experiences of seeing food surplus as a resource and working to normalize food rescue in their industry. SOS will share how we work with partners to systemize food surplus donation and management, following strict food safety protocols, to redirect food waste from manufacturers and retailers to underprivileged communities in the form of nutritious meals. They have great potential and power to transform the food system and rescue food surplus from landfill. Hear from experts as they share their experience working with Scholars of Sustenance Thailand.

Surplus Cooking Demonstration
Our very own Food Rescue Ambassadors will present great chefs from Scholar of Sustenance’s partner hotels with rescued surplus food. The challenge? Use these quality ingredients to create the best dish. This competition not only tests the talent of these chefs, but demonstrates the process of SOS’s daily operations, rescuing surplus food and turning it into tasty, nutritious meals.
