Shared pantries installed near industrial estates to help workers

Shared pantries installed near industrial estates to help workers

TUESDAY, June 09, 2020

The Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT) has set up community pantries in neighbourhoods near industrial estates and ports nationwide, to help people suffering amid the Covid-19 outbreak and lockdown. The authority has also set up a pantry at its headquarters in Makkasan, Bangkok.

IEAT governor Somjin Piluek said the move was also aimed to enable businesses in industrial estates and people in nearby communities to share items to help those who face difficulties in their daily lives.
"The cupboards are being stocked with items including dried foods, and consumer goods such as instant noodles, eggs, cooking oils, canned fishes, milk, sweets, and drinking water."
She asked people to take only the items they needed from the cupboards so that everyone could overcome the crisis together.
