Feb 28, 2011 – Food for Life Global affiliate in Christchurch, ISKCON NZ, was not spared from the devastating affects of the recent earthquake. “The earthquake destroyed the temple as well as our member’s homes. However, the monks and the congregation of the Krishna community are all safe,” explained Ramanuja das, the president of the temple. True to the spirit of Food for Life, the Krishna devotees have initiated a food relief effort to help families that have lost everything. “We are cooking and serving between 400 and 700 people in the New Brighton main street. The aim is to carry on every day for as long as possible,” he said.
