Food for Life Houston Serving Vegan Meals to Hurricane Survivors

HELP US HELP TEXAS FLOOD VICTIMS

An estimated 21 trillion gallons of rain fell on the Houston area as a result of Hurricane Harvey, causing 51 inches of flooding in the worst hit places and resulting in over 1 million displaced people.

Harvey’s devastating flooding brought back tough memories in New Orleans as Tuesday marked the 12th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

The death toll in Texas related to Hurricane Harvey rose to at least 37 Thursday morning, CNN reports.

The Govinda’s vegetarian restaurant in Houston has been offering 300-400 free vegan meals to victims since the storm hit, however, they are now delivering free vegan meals to area shelters, including 200 hot meals to volunteers at the University of Houston who are doing volunteer service at various shelters.

“The shelters don’t have vegan food for volunteers, so we stepped up,” says Shyamasundara, the ISKCON temple president.

The temple is also offering spiritual counseling services for those in need and doing kirtan and prayer for the victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Food for Life Global is collecting funds on behalf of the vegan food relief. Please donate to sponsor free vegan meals to those in need in Texas.
