Devotees Join UK Food Relief Program

Posted February 9, 2011

For many years Hare Krishna Food for All, the Kingscross, UK prasad distribution team, has worked together with a local Catholic church to benefit the homeless community. Four days a week the devotees deliver cake and biscuits to a church in Camden, North London — enough cake for about 300 people.

We are a member of "Unleash," an organisation made up mainly of Christian groups helping the needy all over England. In fact we are the only non-Christian group, and they wrote a very favourable article about us on the front page of their magazine.

Apart from the benefits of networking and interfaith, we also get loads of donations of foodstuff ingredients for the program, since we are known for being able to shift mountains of food. We are presently cooking for 900 people daily; the only non-donated item we need to buy at the moment is salt.
