Food for Life in Japan – Week 7 & 8

Food for Life volunteers serving hot vegetable curry

May 29, Miyagi, Japan — Food for Life Japan continued to provide sumptuous vegetarian meals to survivors of Japan’s worst natural disaster. Despite the heavy rains, 34 volunteers traveled the arduous distance to the shelters to serve sandwiches, soups, pasta, cakes, chips, cookies, and orange juice, along with 1,200kg of fresh fruits and vegetables.

The latest efforts were jointly sponsored by the Indian Jewelry and Diamond association, Jatin Patel, Samir Bodhe, Jishad Abubacker, Nalnish Agarwal, and Aravind Mohonaram.

The Govinda’s restaurant team has been providing hot meals for all seven weeks.

June 5th, Miyagi, Japan — One of the most hectic weeks for Food for Life Japan, but more than 800 people received a delicious lunch consisting of two vegetable curries, roti, salad, juices, and snacks, along with another truckload of fresh fruits and vegetables.

To date, more than 5400 people have been served a hot dinner, and over 24,000 people have been served breakfast and lunch via Food for Life Japan’s donation of fruits and vegetables.

Navin Sonak of the Sekaiboeki company and Mr. Jaju Ji of Recon Gems sponsored the meals.

Once again, Govinda’s restaurant provided hot meals.

An enormous effort is required throughout the whole cycle, from preparation to distribution, including driving, transportation, shopping, cutting vegetables, cooking, packing, distribution, and cleaning.
