Food for the soul

FOOD FOR LIFE Global’s mission is inspired by the following words of the world’s foremost Vedic scholar and teacher, Srila Prabhupada

Prabhupada_prasadam

By the liberal distribution of prasadam (pure plant-based food) and sankirtan (pure sound), the whole world can become peaceful and prosperous.”

The main impetus for any of ISKCONs activities is a mood of devotion and love for the Supreme Person, Sri Krsna. The food cooked is therefore done with that extra little bit of tlc. Once prepared, the food is offered to Krsna in a gesture of love. The food is then called prasadam meaning the Lords mercy. Imbued with this spiritual ambience, prasadam satisfies and nourishes, not just on the physical level but also on a spiritual level. Subsequently, prasadam is distributed to all, whether to address the hunger of the stomach, or to quell the thirst of the heart and soul.

The order

In 1974, Srila Prabhupada was looking out from his room at ISKCON’s temple in Mayapura (West Bengal), when he noticed a group of village children fighting with street dogs over scraps of food. Shocked and saddened by what he saw, Srila Prabhupada turned to his disciples and said, “Imagine how hungry they are…. “God is the Father. Wherever there is the Father, the children should not be hungry? A temple therefore means: free food distribution…. “No one within a ten mile radius of our temples should go hungry…. “. I want you to begin distributing food immediately.”

These prophetic words rang loudly, inspiring his followers. A global network of free food kitchens, cafes, vans, and emergency services were soon established. Hare Krishna Food for Life has emerged as the world’s largest vegetarian/vegan food-relief program with 170 free food kitchens, home delivery programs, mobile kitchens, school services and disaster relief programs. From the time of the order up to the turn of the century over 100 million meals had been served worldwide.
