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
Each month, participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to donate the money they save on food to help others. As January’s fast falls on the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., the King Center was selected.
The King Center is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving for future generations the legacy and teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through education, research and events. Donating to the King Center supports the continuation of his message of nonviolence, promoting racial reconciliation, and social justice. Learn more on their website, https://thekingcenter.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
