These Thai monks are feeding people in need
using a golf cart and a trailer loaded with groceries
Location: Bangkok, Thailand
The truck hits the streets every Sunday
bringing produce to hundreds of people living in remote areas
Monk Pornchai Kabmalee came up with the idea
(SOUNDBITE) (Thai) MONK PORNCHAI KABMALEE, SAYING:"Every time we go out, we donate at least two tons of fresh vegetables, as well as rice, dry food, water, milk, snacks for kids and even dish soap. I can say our truck basically has everything that a supermarket has."
Each week's donations cost at least 50,000 baht ($1,500)
a cost initially covered out of the monks' own pockets
Now, other people are also making donations
(SOUNDBITE) (Thai) VILLAGER, MONTRI BOONTHEAB, SAYING:"This food will make me feel less hungry for a couple of days. I have been unemployed for a year and I don't see my future yet."
(SOUNDBITE) (Thai) MONK PORNCHAI KABMALEE, SAYING:"When people are full for even one meal, it fills up my heart."
