embracing authenticity 

What is a Saranya Cooks Thai recipe kit?

A box of fresh, authentic ingredients delivered to your front door (anywhere in the Denver Metro, Northern Colorado, and Boulder areas) so you can create delicious Thai dishes in the comfort of your own home. Every kit comes with all the ingredients needed for four servings, no meat so you can add your own (or to create meatless dishes). The kit will include a recipe and a direct phone number if any questions should come up during food preparation.

Why a Saranya Cooks Thai (SCT) recipe kit?

Every ingredient in an SCT kit is guaranteed to be authentic, fresh, and sourced from small locally owned businesses. Authentic Thai and generally Asian ingredients are difficult to find unless you live in a major U.S. city and even with access, the process may be daunting and overwhelming. The SCT kit takes the struggle of grocery shopping out of your hands and guides you through the cooking process to guarantee ease and an opportunity to wow your friends and family.


What impact will you make?

With your purchase of an SCT kit, one box filled with culturally relevant ingredients will be delivered to families and/or individuals experiencing food insecurity as determined by our partnership with Denver Metro based organizations working closely with immigrant and refugee families.

  • Why are culturally relevant food boxes important? 

    • Those who rely on food assistance programs often focus on necessities that are limited by the program itself.

    • A lot of immigrant communities have additional barriers to accessing food assistance benefits.

    • Food banks rarely offer culturally relevant selections.

    • Most food boxes that families have access to, usually consist of canned foods donated by the public, which often are the “rejects” from the back of their cabinets.

With every additional $10 donation you choose to make, an additional box will be donated.

For example: Buy a box + donate $10 = two boxes will be distributed!
