Peter O’Grady (aka Parasuram Das) is a man on a mission in the UK. The smiling irishman has been cooking and feeding people for over 25 years and he does it all for free! “He is one of our best,” says, International Director, Paul Rodney Turner. “Parasuram is just a saintly man with a heart of gold. All he cares about is helping other people. I am so impressed by his determination and enthusiasm to serve day in and day out.” Recently, Peter was asked to participate in the ITV special cooking show, Food Glorious Food, as judges from the show scoured the country in search of a very special dish that everyone in Britain will, for the first time ever, be able to buy and eat in stores nationwide. Peter showcased his famous “Poor Man’s Feast” recipe and host Loyd Grossman loved it. Food Glorious Food is a competition for budding cooks – and the prize couldn’t be more mouth-watering – the winner gets to see their dish on the shelves of Marks & Spencer stores all over the UK as well as receiving a cash prize of £20,000.

Food for Life Global is happy to welcome the latest of it’s affiliates, the Perth-based non-profit PAWS. “David Reynolds (below), director of PAWS approached me to partner with FFLG and after observing the work they are doing we were more than happy to collaborate,” said Paul Turner, director of FFLG. Turner visited the organization before heading out of Australia on an FFLG world tour to help expand the charity’s work. He visited the PAWS vegan cafe, the hub of PAWS projects, that include feeding the homeless, community gardens, animal welfare, temporary shelter for humans, and health and nutrition services, etc,. “I believe PAWS is a model for other non-profits in the vegan/vegetarian sector,” says Turner. “We are very hopeful for this new alliance and look forward to supporting David and his terrific group of helpers and learning from their success so that we can share it with our other partners.” One of the biggest supporters of PAWS is the local “birdman” Joel Cornwell who has been supplying fruits and vegetables for the PAWS cafe and relief projects for years. “Joel manages to get us just about everything we need to make our meals for people and through his efforts we are able to keep our costs down and even offer free meals to anyone that cannot afford to eat at our cafe,” explained Reynolds.
