Our Mission:

Inspiring marginalized youth in Bangkok through the power of food!

Our Motto:

“Leaders in the kitchen, are leaders in the community.”

We help students who are at risk of:

  1. Poverty
  2. Malnutrition
  3. Poor Education

Although Bangkok is a city well known for its food, there are still communities where people struggle to feed themselves. Courageous Kitchen’s aim is to fund basic needs, feed the hungry, and educate people so they have the means to lift themselves out of poverty. We currently work with at-risk students and their families in a few small communities in Bangkok.
