Food for Life Brings Meals, Hope to Katrina Victims

As people everywhere send prayers and aid to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, teams of volunteers have mobilised, determined to get freshly made meals to everyone in the Gulf Coast area who needs them.

For some volunteers, this service is not merely a good deed—it’s a sacred duty. They are members of Food For Life Global, said to be the world’s largest vegetarian/vegan food relief group, a not-for-profit organisation that is affiliated with the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON), and the food that they are distributing is prasadam (sanctified vegetarian fare).
