Hare Krishna Food for Life is the world’s largest vegan and vegetarian non-profit food relief organization with projects in over 60 countries.
•Volunteers serve more than 1,500,000 free meals daily in a variety of ways, including: food vans serving to the homeless within major cities around the world; lunch time meals for poor school children throughout India; and also in response to large natural disasters, such as the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake.
•With roots in India, the Food for Life project is a modern day revival of the ancient Vedic culture of hospitality with its belief in the equality of all beings. It was conceived of and began by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness in 1974 and is thus commonly known as Hare Krishna Food for Life. It has been commended by the New York Times and the International Rescue Committee (among others) for its relief efforts worldwide.
•Volunteers responded to the Hurricane Katrina disaster in late August of 2005 by providing meals to families relocated to Mississippi and Texas. Up to 800 meals were served daily
