Dine out to help those in need of food
Chef Deepanker "DK" Khosla of Haoma and chef Phanuphon "Black" Bulsuwan of Blackitch in Chiang Mai have joined hands to offer the "No One Hungry Charity Dinner" on Wednesday. The venue is Haoma, an urban farm and zero-waste restaurant located on Sukhumvit 31.
The Haoma X Blackitch Artisan Kitchen collaboration will see a donation of 20 meals to Haoma's "No One Hungry" cause for every single ticket sold. The theme of the dinner will be inspired by the hard efforts both chefs have put forward during the Covid-19 crisis, displaying their acts of humanitarianism to feed the hungry.
While Deepanker helped the vulnerable and stepped up to provide them with the basic nutrition during the lockdown, Black was doing the same in Chiang Mai by helping a hundred people affected by a massive bush fire.
The "No One Hungry" campaign was initiated by DK after the devastating effects Covid-19 in Bangkok, not only to his business and staff but also for the low-income individuals and families who lost their jobs and livelihoods.

The campaign calls out for assistance by three means. The first method is to ask local chefs to donate their time, skills, and resources to cook for the city's migrants who have no income. Ingredients for the meals have been provided by Haoma. Chef DK and the team have a target of 1,000 meals a day or more. So far, Haoma has distributed 65,000 meals.
Second, the campaign is also reaching out to the public for either a monetary contribution or donation of ingredients and last, it has asked people to share the cause or simply tell their friends about it.
The 10-course dinner is priced at 2,990 baht with seating time at 6pm, 7pm and 8am. Beverage pairing is available.
