Tucson Celebrates Feed the World Day
Posted October 1, 2008
Many community groups also participated, including the Tucson Community Food Bank, Solar Power, Peace Fellowship and practitioners of reiki and massage, all of whom offered information and services free or for a nominal donation.
Stage performances of traditional kirtans rotated among Sukadev das from Los Angeles, Dasarath das from Sedona and Bhakta Raj from Phoenix throughout the five-hour event. Ganga Mantri das of San Diego performed his original one-man-band Krishna conscious rock and roll songs as well as some very danceable tunes of the maha-mantra.
Devotees made a vegan meal with six different preparations, and the temple cooks had to cook again three times just to keep up with the demand. Feed the World Day had been advertised in local newspapers and other publications.
