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.

May’s #fastforpeace Charity
Each month, fastforpeace.org encourages participants to donate the money they save on food to help others, and invites them to suggest future causes of charities. In May, we’ve selected Misericordia (Latin for mercy), a community of care for persons with mild to profound developmental disabilities, many of whom are also physically challenged. By serving society’s most vulnerable citizens, Misericordia also serves the families who want the best for them, yet cannot provide it at home.
Misericordia currently serves more than 600 children and adults residentially, from diverse racial, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Twenty percent of residents either come from families in poverty, or have no families and are wards of the State. Please visit their website, www.misericordia.com, to learn more and make a donation.
“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
