Where Should I Distribute?
There are numerous ways to operate your FFL project, including from the temple, from a soup kitchen, in partnership with another NGO, or a mobile service, etc.
The Different Kinds of FFL Programs
Food for Life projects may have unique missions based on the needs of the local community
A Direct Challenge to Naysayers
Jayadvaita Swami and others have been very vocal in protesting the legitimacy of Food for Life. In this section, we directly address each one of their criticisms.
What Should I Distribute?
There is no reason why you have to serve Indian cuisine. Prasadam is not tied to a particular country and Prabhupada encouraged devotees to cook according to local taste.
The Ideal Menu
Whatever your budget allows and the parameters of your local community’s taste preference. I also discuss the dangers of commercial milk.
How Should I Distribute?
Rules of Serving Prasadam

The “Brhat Mrdange” of book distribution was Srila Bhaktisiddhanta’s way of reaching the masses. In this section, we talk about how to reach the masses with your FFL message using modern media.

Fundraising requires “Friend” raising, so here we discuss the fundamentals of a good strategy.
The Government has a lot of money to give you if you position your project in the right way and follow the rules of transparency.
How to Manage your FFL Project
Here we discuss some good managerial tactics to keep the ship running.
What did Prabhupada Say in Support of Food for Life?
A SAMPLE Food for Life Constitution
A sample constitution that you can use when registering your charity with the government.
Even more nectar, including information on bogus ingredients in foods, etc.
Praise for the FFLG Training Manual
I am eternally indebted to Priyavrata for his selfless determination and dedication to assist me in helping to develop this essential field of Krishna consciousness activity.
