Partners join forces in major CSR project to bake 6,000 loaves of bread and 20,000 cookies for underprivileged communities in the Thai capital
Marriott International and the Marriott Thailand Business Council have joined forces with Scholars of Sustenance Foundation (SOS) to bake vast quantities of bread and cookies, and deliver them to underprivileged communities in Bangkok.
The long-standing partners came together at The Athenee Hotel, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Bangkok on Tuesday 12th May 2020, to launch this ambitious initiative. The hotel’s chefs will bake 300 loaves of raisin bread and 1,000 oatmeal banana cookies every day for 20 consecutive days, to be distributed by SOS. By the end of the project, Marriott and SOS will have delivered a staggering 6,000 loaves of bread and 20,000 cookies – a truly herculean CSR effort!
Marriott usually sends surplus food from the group’s F&B outlets to families in need, via SOS. But with most Bangkok hotels currently closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the partners needed to think of a new way to deliver their food. This CSR project has been made possible by the generosity of the group’s local suppliers; Centuryhouse Dairy and Premier Dairy Product are providing 520kg of unsalted butter, Laemthong Corporation Group has supplied 840kg of wheat flour and 7,600 eggs, Betagro and The Saitarn Foundation have offered 3,150 eggs, and Shrewsbury International School is sending 100kg of nuts, oats and raisins.
