CP Foods delivers ready-to-eat meals to 15 hospitals in six ‘red-zone’ provinces
Charoen Pokphand Foods (CP Foods) has delivered more than 61,000 packs of ready-to-eat meals to medical staff working on the frontline in 15 hospitals in six “red” provinces.
The “red” provinces, Samut Sakhon, Samut Songkhram, Nakhon Pathom, Ratchaburi, Suphanburi and Kanchanaburi, have been put under maximum control based on the number of Covid-19 cases.
The meals have been delivered to Samut Sakhon Hospital, Krathum Baen Hospital, Nakhon Pathom Hospital, Banglane Hospital, Ratchaburi Hospital, Damnoen Saduak Hospital, Ban Pong Hospital, Ban Phaeo Hospital, Somdej Phra Phutthaloetla Hospital, Napalai Hospital, King Mongkut's Hospital, Makarak Hospital, Pahonpol Payuha Sena Hospital, Chaophraya Yommaraj Hospital and Somdejprasangkharach XVII Hospital.
The project was initiated in March last year by CP Foods CEO Prasit Boondoungprasert and has so far delivered meals to 200 public hospitals and 20,000 families of doctors and nurses nationwide.
CP Foods is also supporting five hospitals in remote areas of Tak province to tackle cases coming across the Thai-Myanmar border.
In addition to frontline medical workers, CP Foods is collaborating with government agencies and other partners to provide food supplies to migrant workers and underprivileged people.
The company recently partnered with the Labour Protection Network to provide more than 30,000 packs of ready-to-eat meals and 10,000 fresh eggs to help migrant workers affected by the closure of the Mahachai shrimp market in Samut Sakhon.
