With the advent of the Corona Virus on our planet, everyone here in India is locked down in the homes. In this scenario, there are people for whom arranging food has become a challenge. Seeing the struggle of the families of daily labourers where every person is hit more by hunger than by corona, we are trying to provide free daily meals to them.
We, at ISKCON Sheshadripuram, and have taken up this task under the ‘food for life’ initiative. We are reaching out to the needy families, like those of labourers, housemaids, rickshaw pullers, porters etc, who have been rendered jobless by corona. Their meals will be prepared at the ISKCON Kanpur kitchen.
IT COSTS JUST INR 15 FOR A MEAL.
HELP US RAISE INR 4.2L OR MORE. THIS WILL FEED 700 PEOPLE OR MORE FOR TWENTY DAYS (TWO MEALS A DAY).
MEALS BEING PREPARED IN THE ISKCON KITCHEN - QUALITY AND HYGIENE
From preparation to delivery of the meals, the kitchens operate on a daily basis keeping in mind the two most important elements: hygiene and quality.
The International Society for Krishna Consciousness, otherwise known as the Hare Krishna movement, includes 500 major centres, temples and rural communities, thousands of local meeting groups and a wide variety of community projects and millions of congregational members worldwide. Although it’s only been less than 50 years on the global stage, ISKCON has expanded widely since its founding in 1966.

How does crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.
It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.
