LITTLE CHEF CHANGES THE WORLD

Category: Performing Arts, Urban Related, Urban Development

The Little Chef Changes The World is a food campaign initiated by Gabfai Theatre Group core member, Sasithon Kamrit (Ann). The initiative was born in 2013 from the worrying fact that green areas in Chiang Mai have been declining rapidly. Since the city’s land has been developed for other usage, families, communities and schools who depend on agricultural land to grow vegetables for their daily consumption need to find ways to manage limited land more efficiently. By using theatre as a tool to raise awareness about food stocks, how to cook meals using locally grown vegetables and food safety, the campaign reaches out to local communities and schools to change their dietary behavior and attitudes.
