The Early Days
Hearkening to the swami’s plea, his followers around the world were inspired to expand that original effort into a global network of free food kitchens, cafes, vans, and mobile services, establishing daily delivery routes in many large cities around the world.
In the war zone of Sarajevo, Bosnia-Herzegovina, FOOD FOR LIFE volunteers visited orphanages, homes for the elderly, hospitals, institutes for handicapped children, and basement shelters on a daily basis throughout the three-year conflict; an estimated 20 tons of food have been distributed since 1992.
FOOD FOR LIFE’s most valiant efforts in war-torn Grozny, Chechnya were noted in a New York Times article (December 12, 1995) that stated:
“Here, [FOOD FOR LIFE volunteers] have a reputation like the one Mother Teresa has in Calcutta: it’s not hard finding people to swear they are saints.”
