Bhaktivedanta Food Rescue2

Every 3.6 seconds someone in the world dies of hunger…
Every year 15 million children die of hunger throughout the world…
One of every 8 children under the age of 12 in the United States goes to sleep hungry every night…
For the same price as just a single  missile, an entire school of hungry children can eat daily for a period of five years…

The Prabhuji Food Rescue Program was founded by Prabhuji. Its objective is to try to alleviate hunger in the New York city community, in the United States and in the entire world, and to help distribute more evenly the resources of mother earth.

In a city like New York, with an excess of food, incredible amounts of food are thrown in the garbage daily due to the simple fact that their official sale date is about to expire. These are products that can no longer be sold, but are perfectly safe for consumption. Such foods are being donated generously by restaurants, supermarkets and farms to the “Prabhuji Food Rescue Program” of the Prabhuji Mission. We are in charge of rescuing the food and delivering it to organizations and institutions that are dedicated to distributing food to the needy.

Among the institutions that we support are various Churches, food pantries orphanages in New York City and Upstate New York.

Prabhuji Food Rescue Program is one of the most important projects of our mission. Prabhuji is grateful with all his heart for the cooperation, enthusiasm and help of all the disciples and volunteers who are making great efforts to maintain as well as expand this important program. If you work in a supermarket, a restaurant or a farm, and are saddened by the sight of food that is safe for consumption, being thrown in the garbage, please contact us. Our volunteers will be on hand  to quickly pick up the donation and will be sure to deliver it to those who distribute food to the needy.
