October 15-21 will mark the annual observance of Feed the World Week (FWW). During this week, Food for Life volunteers and inspired vegans, vegetarians and animal lovers in over 60 countries will serve out millions of karma-free plant-based meals to the world!
Feed the World Week is an open community event to show how food when prepared and distributed with love, has the power to unite and heal the world.
Feed the World Week is a call for action: for the world to move away from animal agriculture—the greatest cause of environmental pollution and the principle reason why there is so much hunger in the world today. Most non-vegetarians are unaware that more than 70% of the world’s grain production is fed to livestock destined for slaughterhouses. That same grain could feed humans. Every year, millions of children in the developing world die from hunger, alongside fields of fodder destined for the West’s livestock.
In an attempt to correct this imbalance of the earth’s resources, Food for Life volunteers daily distribute up to two million karma-free meals to the needy of the world!
During Feed the World Week, we share healthy non-violent food in remembrance of the world’s 1.3 billion hungry. The fact is, if Americans reduced their meat consumption by 10 percent, enough grains would be saved to feed sixty million people!
