The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) has launched a mobile kitchen to cook 500 meals per day for people suffering financial distress during the virus pandemic.

BMA permanent secretary Silapasuay Raweesangsoon said the move to set up the free kitchen, located beneath the MRT Tao Poon station in Bang Sue District, was in line with the prime minister’s policy to relieve people’s burdens during the outbreak.

“The Department of Social Development began operating the mobile kitchen on April 25,” she said on Monday (April 27).

“We also set up screening checkpoint to measure body temperature and hand out queue cards, cloth masks and handwash gel. Those queuing for food must wear a mask and maintain their distance from others for their safety and to prevent the spread of the disease.”

She added that BMA would launch more food stations to cover the whole of Bangkok.

“On Tuesday [April 28], we will a launch a mobile kitchen at Phet Thanom School in Ladprao District,” she added. “Also, we have assembled bags of relief supplies to help people who are suffering during the pandemic.”
