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.

January’s #fastforpeace Charity
Participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to donate the money they save on food to help others, and invited to nominate a charity for upcoming months. This month, January’s #fastforpeace charity is So Others Might Eat, a interfaith group fighting the cycle of poverty and homelessness in Washington D.C. You can learn more and make a donation on their website. https://www.some.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
