Food for Life just turned three!

11:10:00 PM By Madhavi

Every month, a bunch of local youth at the Hare Krishna Centre along with other budding spiritualists from Krishna Club, York University go out to the streets and share a hot meal of pasta with the homeless. This exciting endeavour is called Food for Life, Toronto.

With similar projects happening all over the world, participating members believe that it is not just about sharing a hot meal, it is about sharing love and showing those who are less fortunate that there is some one who cares about them. When they go out for Food for Life (usually at Sherbourne and Queen), it is always accompanied with hot pasta being served along with chanting of the Hare Krishna Mahamantra!

Last Sunday, Food for Life Toronto turned three years old. That means, that till today, over 3600 of plates of hot pasta have been distributed to the homeless in Toronto and we hope that this number continues to grow.

To celebrate this special occasion, we have some videos from different years of the project!

Here is a video of the second Food for Life from December 2008

And here we have a video from May 2009 when our friends from the Montreal Hare Krishna Centre were visiting us.
