Songkran Special

Songkran is a celebration of the Thai New Year, symbolising new beginnings and goodwill. This is also the time of year when we embrace our Thai heritage and use the opportunity to assist those in need.

During our 2015 Songkran celebrations, you helped us raise enough funds to donate 24,455 meals to feed hungry children through the Lunchbox Fund, a Non-Profit Organisation that focuses on fostering education via nutrition by providing a daily meal for orphaned and at-risk school children in townships and rural areas of South Africa.


This year we’re aiming to reach even more children. So we’ve re-introduced our Songkran Special, but this time it’s a little different.

So, what is this year’s delicious Songkran Special?

We’ve carefully selected 4 of our most popular noodle dishes and coupled it a refreshing BOS Ice Tea for
only R69!

And for every Songkran Special sold, we’ll donate R3.25 to the Lunchbox Fund…
Giving back never tasted so good… and it’s so simple…

Visit any Simply Asia in South Africa and choose 1 dish from the 4 dishes promoted on the Songkran Special promotional material – Vegetarian Yellow Noodle Stir-Fry {403} / Chicken Sweet Soya Noodles {505} / Chicken Roasted Chilli Paste & Cashew Nut Noodles {514} / Chicken Thai Tongkatsu Linguine {530}. Then select 1 of the 4 BOS Ice Tea flavours – Lemon / Peach / Lime & Ginger / Sparkling Lemon. And enjoy!


This delicious Songkran Special is available every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for the month of April 2016. That means you need to rush to your nearest Simply Asia on Monday, 4 April 2016 to be one of the first to enjoy this delicious deal. And don’t forget to diarize Wednesday, 27 April 2016 because that’s sadly the last day you’ll be able to join us in our Songkran celebrations.

The Songkran Special is available for both sit-down and take-away orders, but sadly not through third party ordering, online ordering or delivery services.

Who is the Lunchbox Fund and what do they do?

The Lunchbox Fund provides a rotating menu of nutritionally fortified foods that are delicious and familiar to children. It takes only R2.50 for the Lunchbox Fund to provide a warm meal to feed a hungry child at school, and each meal provides a full RDA of vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients to the child.

Receiving food encourages these children to stay in school and obtain their education – the regular lunch programs increase enrolment at schools and reduce truancy rates. Students who participate in a school feeding program attend school more frequently than those who do not. Academic performance also improves with test scores increasing in students who have access to a daily meal through the school feeding program.

The Lunchbox Fund has been feeding impoverished school children since 2005. Once a partner school is identified and vetted, they work with a school-based support team and school principals to determine which students are most in need of nutritional support.

Despite significant obstacles, students struggle to complete their education and become thriving members of society. The Lunchbox Fund works with a wide range of schools and early development centres, providing over 1 million meals annually. They currently serve the following provinces: Gauteng, Western Cape, Eastern Cape, North West Province and Limpopo.
