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.

July’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 to nominate charities or causes during the post-fast survey. The American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), a Quaker organization, was selected for July’s #fastforpeace charity.
Quakers were among Gandhi’s earliest friends as a young man beginning his search for spiritual enlightenment; another young Quaker carried his letter to the Viceroy announcing the 1930 Salt March. The AFSC promotes a world free of violence, inequality, and oppression. You learn more about their efforts and can donate on their website: www.afsc.org/give By supporting this worthy cause, you can help to promote Gandhi’s lessons.
“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
