Scholarship Program

Food To Thrive is dedicated to bring education and training to people who put so much pride and hard work into creating Explore Cuisine products. In China, we have started a college education scholarship fund for the factory worker’s children. In Thailand, certified organic farming is on the rise. The Food To Thrive Foundation hosts education sessions on organic seeds, planting techniques, and more to rice networking groups in rural Thailand where education and products are hard to reach.
