    The food rescuer

    Guru, Pornchai Sereemongkonpol, Published on 13/10/2017

    » Tanaporn "Faii" Oi-isaranukul (second from left) is a donor relations coordinator and food hygienist at ThaiHarvest-SOS (fb.com/thaiharvestsos, thaiharvestsos.org), a local food rescue foundation which raises awareness around food waste and combats it. So far, it has rescued 65 tonnes of edible excess food and collected around 120 tonnes in scraps of food to make compost. One kilo of food provides up to three meals. Do the maths. They have provided 195,000 meals for those in need such as refugees and orphans. And, for every B1,000 spent, they serve 50 meals. Faii, a food science graduate from King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, tells us about the budding organisation and how you can help out.
