Food For Life Program
Feeding the people of Edmonton amazing vegan meals! Currently once a month at Boyle Street Community center! Looking to expand
Hare Krishna Food for Life is the world's largest vegetarian non-profit food relief organization. Its efforts span the globe, with projects occupying over 60 countries. Volunteers provide up to 2,000,000 free meals daily. Food For Life does not only tackle only one form of hunger but reaches out to all in need, including; the homeless, disadvantaged children throughout India; and victims of natural disasters around the world.
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 ISKCON Food For Life or Hare Krishna Food For Life. It has been lauded by The New York Times Vegetarian Times, as well as Paul McCartney and Nelson Mandela amongst others, for its relief efforts worldwide.
Our volunteers prepare food in our temple and take it to the Boyle Street Community Centre in the Downtown Edmonton to feed 150-200 less fortunate homeless people every month.
