"Food for Life" Hits the Streets Again!

1:43:00 PM By Kevala-Bhakti Dasa (Keshav) , , , 1 comment

Srila Prabhupada, our founding guru of the Hare Krishna movement, had a desire to have widespread prasadam (sanctified food) distribution around the world. In an ongoing endeavor to fulfill this desire, the youth from ISKCON Toronto have been distributing prasadam to Toronto's homeless.

This past Sunday, 100 bio-degradable take-out containers were filled to the brim with delicious hot pasta and treats and were personally handed out to the homeless on the street. While some of the volunteers distributed the food containers, other devotees created a wonderful atmosphere by performing harinama-sankirtana, chanting and singing, as they happily sang the Hare Krishna maha-mantra. Additionally, two large trays of hot pasta were delivered to a homeless shelter for distribution later in the day.

This Food for Life program takes place on the last Sunday of each month and all volunteers and food/monetary sponsorships are welcome. If you would like to participate please contact ffltoronto @ hotmail.com
