Scholars of Sustenance Foundation (SOS)
As the world has enough capacity to produce food to feed 10 billion people, one-third of all food is wasted and approximately 1 billion people out of the existing 7.8 billion world population is suffering from the lack of food. The problem in current food system does not seem to lie as much in food scarcity as much as the actual lack of equally accessible food distribution. This is where SOS’s ‘food rescue’ model comes in, to tackle environmental problems from food waste and endorse food equity and establish food bank in Thailand. __________________________ Scholars of Sustenance Foundation (SOS) has been operating since 2016 from nothing to over 2,000 kg a day. However, there is still a long way to go to reach 25 Million meals in 2025. One of the areas we currently need help is in fundraising. Our operation of 5 refrigerated trucks and 2 normal trucks run 7 days/week to feed communities in need, the logistics and manpower cost are 60% of foundation’s expenses. We would like to take this opportunity to garner both short-term and long-term financial support, as an organization that has provided more than 3.8 million meals to Thai people, to allow SOS to continue to support communities in need in Thailand.

The Story
3 weeks ago

Who are we

In 2012, the Bo Holmgreen foundation was founded in the United States, and by 2016 the name changed to Scholars of Sustenance, and the first operation was established in Bangkok.  In 2017 Scholars of Sustenance was established in Bali, Indonesia, and then to Phuket, Thailand.  Scholars of Sustenance Foundation are the food rescue foundation, serving the land, the people, and the spirit.  We rescue the food before it ends up in landfills reducing carbon emissions, we provided nutritious sustenance to underprivileged members in the community, sustaining a healthy body and mind, and generate hope where little previously existed.

Ultimately by impacting the way we think in culture and industries, Scholars of Sustenance believe we can change the fundamental access to food. No longer only commercial and by means of money only, but an industry supply model including those left out before. We call this FOOD EQUITY.

Today we have 20 staff including a designated Food Safety Specialist, 5 refrigerated trucks, and 2 dry trucks across Bangkok and Phuket.  We work with 90+ individual donors in the hospitality, retail, and manufacturer sector and donate to more 120 underprivileged recipient communities.  We are also currently in the early stages of trialing drone delivery to 17 remote inaccessible communities in Northern Thailand, essentially cut off during the rainy season.  We deliver safe and nutritious rescued meals for a cost as low as 5 baht.

For who we are make a donation for

 

As Scholars of Sustenance Foundation (SOS) is an operation-based foundation, we conduct operational activities in areas around each base. In this project, we will be focusing on two types of operation in Phuket: Food Rescue Operation and SOS Rescue Kitchen. Food Rescue Operation focuses on collecting surplus food from food businesses around Phuket and donate to communities in need, while SOS Rescue Kitchen focuses on precise distribution methods by freshly cook nutritionally balanced meals for communities in need. Both operations share the same ultimate goal, to prevent food waste production and provide sustenance for communities in need.

 

Currently, our operation in Phuket has reached up to 42 communities in need, which is equivalent to approximately 2,956 people to date.

How will we use money

 

The money will be spent on creating and maintenance of food rescue infrastructural system in Phuket. As much as we believe there is plenty of surplus food constantly being thrown away throughout food supply chains, we also believe good logistic operations will do the trick in balancing the distribution of surplus food to make sure they reach the hands in need. This way, much more food (potentially much higher quality in many cases) can be provided to more people at less cost.

 

Simply put, we will use the money to operate trucks that will run collecting surplus food 7 days/week and while most will be donated within the same day, some of the captured food will be used to SOS Rescue Kitchen.

Why this is important

 

In Thailand, it is estimated to have around 17.9 million tons/year in 2019 of food waste going to the landfills. While there were probably 62 Million meals that could have been rescued to redistribute to the people in need. The food rescue project, therefore, was introduced to rescue edible food from hospitality businesses, restaurants, and supermarkets every day since 2016. Today SOS redistributes the surplus food from businesses around Bangkok and Phuket around 4,000 meals a day to the community and charitable institutions regardless of differences, so that they have enough food to survive at least 3-4 days a week. Even so, there should further researches and programs to do to truly improve the way we redistribute the food and maximize the potential of this mission to make a change in people’s lives.

Thank you

Our gratefulness for your support would not stop here at the success of this project, since your support will help us spread the awareness on the value of surplus food for communities in need. Your support will help us highlight the potential of surplus food and inspire more people to take part in extracting surplus food from food businesses to help more people. We sincerely hope your support, starting with this project, will take this country far and beyond with its long-term impact.
