FOOD YOGA – the story behind Food for Life Global
Overview of Film Concept
Food for Life is the world’s largest food relief serving over 2 million free meals daily. But so many people do not know about our work. Please help me raise awareness with the production of a new documentary film that will take you behind the scenes and tell the full story of how Food for Life started and what motives this volunteer-run organization to do so much and be so effective. As the international director, I am also a volunteer and I have been with Food for Life since 1983 starting as a volunteer in a free food cafe in Australia. In 1993, I left Australia to establish the world headquarters in Washington DC and have since that time traveled to more than 50 countries helping to establish new projects and train thousands of volunteers. This new film will shed light on the amazing work Food for Life Global does all over the world, as I visit projects and interview the unsung heroes of Food for Life Global — the men and women on the ground. Please help me make this new film a reality.
The above candid video (8 min) was shot in 2006 but it gives the spirit of what this new project is aiming to achieve. The statistics have changed since this video was shot — we have gotten bigger!
What We Need & What You Get
We need money to fund the equipment and production of the new film. As you can see our budget is cheap. We expect to get a lot of help from our international affiliates, but this budget is the bare minimum to complete the project.
- $3000 – HD camera and equipment
- $3000 on travel
- $5000 on production and distribution of the film.
For your contribution, we have some nice goodies to give away, including MP3 downloads, the FOOD YOGA ebook, Supporter Tshirts and Vegan Gift baskets. I expect even more goodies to be added very soon, so stay tuned. If for some reason we do not reach our goal, the funds will be used to feed the children at the FFL supported orphanage in Sri Lanka. www.gokulam.org
The fact is: Food for Life Global is effective in what it does. We feed more people for the least amount of money than any other non-profit in the world, and that includes the United Nations World Food Programme! Your donation will help us to expand our work, as more people become aware of Food for Life Global international family of affilliates.
