Fast for Peace is a project that promotes Gandhi’s messages of truth and nonviolence, tolerance, and voluntary temperance.
The 15th of every month is a #fastforpeace day. Members and non-members alike are invited to participate.
Gandhi inspired millions by demonstrating truth and nonviolence as facets of self-control.
He fasted at the risk of his own life and saved countless others.

October’s #fastforpeace Charity
Each month, participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to donate the money they saved on food to help others, and nominate charities or causes during the post-fast survey. This month, Pace e Bene has been selected as the #fastforpeace charity. For three decades, they have promoted nonviolence with speakers, trainings, and book publishings.
Each fall, they also organize Campaign Nonviolence. It is a coordinated effort to promote a culture of peace and justice through thousands of nonviolent actions around the country and the world. You can learn more about their work and make a donation on their website, https://paceebene.org/
“Fasting is regarded by all religions as a great discipline. Those who voluntarily fast become gentle and purified by it. A pure fast is a very powerful prayer. It is no small thing for [hundreds of thousands] of people to voluntarily abstain from food… It ennobles individuals and nations” ~ Mohandas Gandhi
