Fast for Peace is a project that promotes Gandhi’s messages of truth and non-violence, temperance, and tolerance.
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 non-violence as facets of self-control.
He fasted at the risk of his own life and saved countless others.

Each month, participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to help others through a charitable donation of the money saved on food. This month, fastforpeace.org recommends Wellspring House in Gloucester. Wellspring House assists over 1,000 families each year with homelessness prevention and shelter. They also promote job training and adult education.
“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
