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.

February’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. As part of his effort to address poverty, Mohandas Gandhi lived on a slim diet, and limited himself to five different articles of food per day. He was cognizant that there wasn’t food for everyone in his country, and made his own sacrifices so others might eat.
Shepherd’s Way is an all-volunteer, faith-based charitable organization located in Manchester, New Hampshire. They provide relief to people suffering from issues such as homelessness and hunger. They distribute donations of cash, food, personal hygiene items, clothing, and footwear to the homeless. They exist 100% free of government funding. They are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization which means that any contributions or donations that are made are tax-deductible to the donor.
“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
