The Simple Solution to World Hunger
A talk I gave at the cafe 360 to open the Food Surplus Network in Ljubljana, Slovenia in October 2015. To learn more on this see Paul’s article.
John Robbins, the author of the best-selling Diet for a New America, writes: “The existence of so much hunger in the world is a reality we cannot deny. It is a reality that challenges us deeply: it asks us to become more fully human.” Robbins argues that the world hunger problem is not only the responsibility of the United Nations, but of every human being on the planet. “When we remember those who are without food,” says Robbins, “something is awakened within us. Our own deeper hunger comes to surface—our hunger to live fully, to bring our lives into alignment with our compassion, to make our lives expressions of our spirits.”
Food for Life started in India, after the founder, Swami Prabhupada proclaimed to his yoga students that no one should go hungry within a ten-mile radius of a temple. Since that time, over two billion free plant-based meals have been served to the needy on six continents. Food for Life has emerged as the largest vegan food relief program in the world! Food for Life’s mission—to bring about peaceful and prosperity through the liberal distribution of pure plant-based food prepared with loving intention.
