See Food for Fighters other ongoing projects, collaborations and initiatives:
FFF Invite Bangkok Chefs to donate meals to fill 2 “PINTOGOROUND” pintos along with making 100 box meals for donation. The chefs or restaurant representative will then accompany the FFF team to either field hospital or communities to hand over their meals on June, 29th 2021 at approximately 3pm.
Each community leader or key representative of these communities attended and supervised the handover of meals in their communities alongside the FFF team and chefs. Just some of the communities they will reach are; Talat Tha Ruea Khlong Toei Community, Phatthana Mai Community, Rim Khlong Wat Saphan Community, ฺBaan Mun Kong Community, Wat Khae Nang Loeng Community, Rim Thang Rodfai Yommarat, etc. Including Prateep Ungsongtham Hata, Founder of Duang Prateep Foundation.
The important point that FFF wishes to communicate is the use of “pinto” for waste reduction / which is something FFF have always supported. “PINTOGOROUND” and ourselves at FFF, will continue to deliver food to the field hospitals using environmentally friendly materials as much as it is possible.
FFF also invited guests to help arrange and pack our “survivor bag”, to which we use biodegradable “Tapioplast” bags made from cassava plastic pellets ** “Survival Bags” will be what we continue to offer over these 2 – 3 months.
FFF will Launch LINE sticker, as a visual form of communication in collaboration with a local designer who has kindly offered to volunteer their skills. The artist is, Praew Rakshanok Chuaylua (แพรว รักชนก ช่วยเหลือ), a third-year student from Faculty of Communication Arts, Chulalongkorn University. Collaborating with Praew, represents a new generation in the “FFF Volunteer ” project, and the influence of “Creative Power”, which may help influence a young and modern society about compassion and caring for their fellow countrymen. Miss Amanda Charleen Obdam and other candidates of Miss Thailand Universe (MUT) are also some of the new generation volunteers, who are helping to promote the cause, along with Koen Pataradanai Setsuwan who supports and lobbies for gender diversity in society.
A collaboration between FFF, farmers, and ice cream brand – FFF X EDEN X LAMOON ICE CREAM. The ice cream partnership shows the support for the use of organic ingredients from Khao Yai, Pak Chong and Huai Kha Khaeng (Wildlife Friendly Community Project) – Under the UNDP “Tiger” project. #SupportFarmersSupportFighters.
All of these projects reinforce and reflect the working concept of Food For Fighters. We believe in the power of the “little” people and taking big actions. Food for Fighters will continue to be an organisation that helps to create good health and good will for society (Good Mission).
