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 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.
So Others Might Eat is an interfaith, community-based service organization that exists to help and support residents of Washington D.C., where nearly 20% live as or below the poverty line. In 2018, they provided hundreds of thousands of meals, gave out tens of thousands of free sets of clothing, and made safe, affordable housing available for hundreds. By giving to this worthy cause, you can help to demonstrate Gandhi’s message of care. You can learn more about their efforts and donate on their website: 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
