4 Billion Meals Were Served in 2016

We did it!

Update: 7 Billion Meals Served by FFL in 2021

Serving 4 billion meals is no easy feat, but today, Food for Life Global’s network of 210 affiliates in 60 countries quietly served out the 4 billionth meal. To put that in perspective that is two meals for every child in the world. Starting as a grassroots operation in the fields of Mayapur, West Bengal, the project gradually expanded around the world to now include award-winning mega kitchens in India that churn out up to 70,000 meals a day!

Food for Life Global’s network of affiliates may not get the recognition of other charities like the Red Cross, but it is made up of the most dedicated volunteers on the planet — day in day out – cooking enormous quantities of nutritious plant-based food to satisfy the needs of millions. “Our mission is to unite the world through pure food,” explains Paul Rodney Turner, Co-founder and director of Food for Life Global that was established in 1995. “Through our indiscriminate distribution of plant-based meals we are directly addressing the root cause of hunger and all forms of social injustice, by communicating to our recipients that we love and respect them as our brother or sister.” “By only using plant-based ingredients we are extending this same love and respect to all sentient beings, ” he said. “Every year, more than 56 million animals are killed for food and this is just unacceptable.” Food for Life Global’s spiritual solution to world hunger is not only bolstered by its tremendous ability to cook and serve more food than any other non-profit in the world, but it is also a partner in establishing the Food Surplus Hub in Europe that aims to reuse discarded food and turn it into edible meals.
