Our goal is to ensure students have access to nutritious meals and support schools in developing lunch programs for students from underprivileged families living in remote areas, who may not be eligible for free lunch programs. We achieve this by promoting self-sufficiency in agriculture, cultivating vegetables, and raising animals for consumption, which provides health benefits. Schools and teachers also acquire knowledge about sustainable agriculture, enabling them to apply these principles to develop school lunches in an appropriate manner to maximize benefits for students.”

“We are extremely pleased to partner with the Siam Piwat Group in launching 'Citizen of Love by Siam Piwat x Mindful Meals for Young Minds by the Government Savings Bank.'

The 'Citizen of Love by Siam Piwat x Mindful Meals for Young Minds by the Government Savings Bank' is a project that will bring significant benefits to Thai children, especially schoolchildren in remote areas along the border, most of whom belong to diverse ethnic backgrounds. This project will generate opportunities and work towards reducing inequality and societal gaps by providing educational opportunities. It involves supplying learning materials, essential items, and high-quality cooking ingredients to these children."
