Mission Statement


Food for Life Global’s primary mission is to bring about peace and prosperity in the world through the liberal distribution of prasadam throughout the world. A 501(c)3 charity, Food for Life Global pursues its mission by providing organizational and operating support to Food for Life, an international vegetarian hunger relief program, and 170 related projects. Specifically, Food for Life Global assists these humanitarian efforts by * Coordinating and expanding the distribution of sanctified vegetarian meals all over the world. * Producing promotional and training materials for the development of Food for Life projects worldwide. * Representing Food for Life to governments, the media, and the general public through public lectures, newspaper articles, the Internet, and mail. * Promoting the Vedic culture of hospitality throughout the world * Raising funds on behalf of Food for Life worldwide and coordinating and sponsoring emergency relief efforts conducted by Food for Life volunteers. In its purest form, food has the innate ability to break down barriers and heal body, mind and soul. Food for Life therefore serves only the purest of food—food that is devoid of animal suffering, prepared with love and served with love. Furthermore, recognizing that the ultimate solution to the problem of hunger is the elimination of poverty, Food for Life not only provides direct food distribution services, but also addresses, through its affiliate programs, such diverse but related issues as education, environmental health and sustainability, animal welfare, and health care. Food for Life Global's mission flows from its core values of charity and respect for all living things; its services, therefore, are provided without regard to race, creed, color, religion, sex, community, or nationality. Food for Life Global's slogan is: UNITING THE WORLD THROUGH PURE FOOD

Description


Food for Life Global was founded in 1995 to serve as the support office for Food for Life projects worldwide. Food for Life Global Goals: * To help co-ordinate and expand the distribution of plant-based (prasadam) meals all over the world. * To produce promotional and training materials for the development of Food for Life projects worldwide. * To represent Food for Life to the government, media and public through public lectures, newspaper articles, the Internet, and through mail. * To promote the Vedic food culture and the art of hospitality based on spiritual equality * To raise funds on behalf of Food for Life projects worldwide * To coordinate and sponsor emergency relief efforts conducted by Food for Life volunteers Background on the Food for Life Project: The distribution of sanctified vegetarian meals has been and will continue to be an essential part of India's Vedic culture of hospitality from which Food for Life was born. Since its inception in the early 70s, Food for Life has tried to liberally distribute plant-based meals (prasadam) throughout the world with the aim of creating peace and prosperity. The Food for Life Global office, directed by Paul Turner, facilitates the expansion, co-ordination and promotion of prasadam distribution throughout the world. Details: FOOD FOR LIFE is a nonprofit organization, bringing food and life to the needy of the world through the liberal distribution of plant-based (prasadam) meals. The project started in 1974 when an elderly Indian swami, Srila Prabhupada, implored his yoga students not to allow anyone within a ten mile radius of his ashram to go hungry. The program grew quickly, and today Food for Life is active in over 60 countries worldwide. Over 1,500,000 meals daily! With volunteers serving more than 1,500,000 free vegetarian meals daily from free food restaurants, mobile kitchens, to schools and to disaster areas, FOOD FOR LIFE is the largest vegetarian food relief in the world. Community Based Food for Life Global's volunteers are made up of vegetarians and the socially conscious public. Food for Life Global is a non-sectarian organization. Everyone is welcome to participate in our community projects.
