Many of you are aware that I’ve been involved with Food for Life for 35 years now. My first service when I became a monk was preparing and serving meals to underprivileged at one of the first Food for Life projects in Australia.
A lot has happened since then, including expanding into 60 countries and reaching a milestone of our 211 affiliates serving 5 billion free meals on May 15th this year.
But what is our future vision for Food for Life? And how do we see our strategy solving world hunger?
Some of you might have read this article I wrote many years back where I lay out our essential philosophy and strategy for solving world hunger. Essentially, we propose that the way to solve world hunger is by addressing the root cause — spiritual inequality — which has led to a greedy world where the abundant resources are not equitably distributed.
Our vision for how we expect to achieve that goal, however, has taken on a new twist.
Certainly, our fundamental activities of supporting our affiliates through grants, education, and training will continue, however, we have come to realize that in this age of corporatocracy where business rules everything, it behooves us to fight where the fight is taking place and bring Food for Life Global’s cost-efficiency and purity to the exciting and innovative world of blockchain.
I am only going to tease you in this article and not release much more details. What I will tell you is that we are setting up a social enterprise, independent of the charity whose primary purpose will be to empower and fund Food for Life Global’s mission.
