"Sharing Happiness" initiative has launched "Feed Communities, Rescue Restaurants” to help food outlets and neighborhoods in hardship in the COVID-19 outbreak by hiring 2,000 local eateries to supply 240,000 lunch boxes for 4 months with a budget of 20 million baht.
The ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, lasting more than 18 months and now in a severe third phase, has put over 50,000 local restaurants out of business, leaving many without work or income as the pandemic spreads in Bangkok and its surroundings.
To help relieve this hardship, MQDC has partnered with hospitals under the Principal Healthcare Company, T&B Media Global (Thailand), EEC Engineering Network, and the DTGO-linked Buddharaksa Foundation in “Sharing Happiness”, whose “Feed Communities, Rescue Restaurants” initiative will provide delicious, nutritious food boxes, supporting local restaurants and communities in need in the COVID-19 outbreak.
Participating restaurants must be hygienic and provide high-quality food with eco-friendly containers. The number of meal boxes each eatery provides will depend on how many restaurants take part.
Representatives of people in hardship in Bangkok and its surroundings can request healthy, tasty meal deliveries. Families and individuals can receive “Sharing Happiness” boxes by post with dried food and snacks to last for 3-4 days to help everyone get through this crisis.
“Feed Communities, Rescue Restaurants” aims to relieve suffering for 3 main groups:
