Scholars of Sustenance (SOS) Foundation, one of the charities supported by Baht by Baht, recently presented a culinary workshop at Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park. This event was part of the Marriott Culinary APEC 2019 summit, to raise awareness about key issues and improve best practices in the F&B industry, while also giving back to local communities in the Asia Pacific region.
Together with the hotel's chefs, the SOS team prepared a special lunch for children from Satri Julanak School. The event challenged the participating chefs to create a meal from surplus ingredients, which was then served to the children. After this culinary workshop and lunch, the seminar helped to provoke discussion among delegates and the media.
Bangkok Marriott Marquis Queen’s Park has engaged in efforts to foster sustainable development and social awareness within the F&B industry. These include sourcing from local and organic suppliers and working with SOS to optimize its produce, making use of all surplus food.
