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 SHESHADRIPURAM kitchen.
IT COSTS JUST INR 20 FOR A MEAL.
HELP US RAISE INR 2L TO FEED 500 PEOPLE FOR 20 DAYS.

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.
