“We don’t have education about how to eat. We are eating too much meat and people are getting sick with the time. We have to show to the people what they need to eat. The doors are open for Food for Life Global. We are going to work together to get better food for our kids into the schools.”

Another important building block for new democracy is the love and goodwill we show to each other. That is the spirit of Masakhane, of bringing one another together. It is also the spirit of today’s festival organized by Food for Life.

FOOD FOR LIFE is the real Reconstruction and Development Programme. The understanding that if I have a plate of food, let me share it with my neighbour . . . let those who are feeling sad come together with us, and together we can share this burden. This understanding should be taken from FOOD FOR LIFE and transmitted to the entire country.

…here they [Food for Life] have a reputation like the one Mother Teresa has in Calcutta: it is not hard finding someone to swear they are saints.

I am sure that in every city where there is a FOOD FOR LIFE program, the people would be very grateful for the help they give—feeding hundreds and hundreds of people, that would otherwise cost the city a great deal. And all the support, friendship, and counseling—it’s hard to put a value on something like that.

“Food For Life is the world’s largest vegan food relief organization. They have programs in 60 countries. They serve over 2 million free vegan meals a day. Now, you know that I have been plant-based since 1988, so I can tell you that that is delicious.”
