The Kao Pai Tor 9:9:9 (ก้าวไปต่อ) is an initiative among a long line of initiatives launched by the Food for Fighters and contributing Bangkok Chefs. This September 2021, Food for Fighters collaborated with 9 renowned Bangkok chefs to perform “Masterclasses” to train students from the communities, over a period of 9 days from the 19th to 27th September 2021 at the Sevenfive Distributor Co., Ltd. Nonthaburi.
The aim was to not only provide delicious meals created by talented chefs to distribute to field hospitals and communities gravely suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic but also arm communities leaders with the skill to cook meals, and especially at a larger scale.
The training program’s objective was to ultimately utilise the chef’s cooking knowledge to be put to great purpose, and that is by allowing the community leaders to cook for their own communities and also pass on that training to others. Potentially inspiring others who may want to follow a career path in the food industry.
The program title “Kao Pai Tor” represents in Thai, that no matter what happens to life we need to keep moving on for better days. “During the pandemic, there were mass job losses for the people and this meant loss of income, therefore the campaign was created in support of those who were affected by educating, and helping the communities to potentially create own career path for the future”, said Panchana Vatanasathien, the Food for Fighters organisation’s founder.
The Bangkok Chefs participating in the Kao Pai Tor program were:
Chef Noom Thaninthorn Chantrawan of Chim by Siam Wisdom,
Chef Som Jutamas Theantae of SOM’S TABLE,
Chef Kate Pikun Wangsantia of new Supperclub concept Kate’s Place,
Chef Andy Yang of Pad Thai Ta Lu,
Chef Tukta Supattra Sarasith of Ban Yi San,
Chef Nick Nattapol Pavapaiboon of Wang Hinghoi,
Chef Jimmy Siriphol Wangweerawong of Misoya Ramen Bangkok,
Chef AF Watcharapol Chantakraiwat of Wilaiwan Hua Hin,
For those who don’t know about the Food for Fighters organisation, Food for Fighters is a non-profit organisations project that aims to help front-liners and those in the communities who are greatly affected or at high risk of COVID-19. The project first started to assist doctors and nurses who were working under extreme hours and conditions to help save lives. Food for Fighters began as an initiative which involved farmers, restaurants and other businesses, employees and transport services who could benefit or donate to create a circular food supply chain which could feed those in need with 100s or 1000s of food boxes per day. The idea was to provide a 50-70 budget per box to chefs/cooks/restaurants in which farmers would contribute from the purchase of their produce and goods and some even donate supplies in order to make food boxes. To this day the success of Food for Fighters continues thanks to sponsors, donors and volunteers.
Bangkok Foodies have been a proud media and community sponsor and look forward to what their next Bangkok chefs charity project will bring.
