Feed the World Week
October 15 - 21 will mark the annual observance of Feed the World Week (FWW). During this week, Food for Life volunteers and concerned people in over 60 countries will serve out millions of karma-free vegetarian meals to the world!
The inspiration behind Food for Life, Srila Prabhupada, once wrote: ""By the liberal distribution of prasad (pure vegetarian food) and sankirtan (pure sound), the whole world can become peaceful and prosperous." He also said, "...one earns happiness by making the cows and bulls happy."
Food for Life Global's mission is to UNITE THE WORLD THROUGH FOOD, and so we invite anyone and everyone to join us during this week! Contact your local Food for Life www.ffl.org/ffl_fww_contacts.php representative to volunteer some time, or become an advocate www.ffl.org/ffl_fww_advocacy.php or donate now! www.ffl.org/ffl_fww_donation.php
Feed the World Week is based on the following principles:
- Feed the World Week is based on a simple principle: For one week, the
world should experience a wholesome, nonviolent diet, and thus pave the
way for a peaceful and prosperous world.
- Feed the World Week is an open community event to show how food
and distributed with love, has the power to unite and heal the world.
- Feed the World Week is a call for action: for the world to move away from animal agriculture -the greatest cause of environmental destruction and the principle reason why there is so much hunger in the world today.
