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
Participants in the fast for peace are encouraged to donate the money they save on food to help others, and invited to nominate a cause or charity for upcoming months. For February, Prison Fellowship was nominated and selected. February also marks Gandhi’s longest fast in prison, 21 days at the age of 73, in order to protest the injustice of indefinite detention. In 2021, fastforpeace.org is reaching out to prisoners across the United States, inviting them to participate with us in our monthly fast; if you’d like to help, please contact email@example.com.
Founded in 1976, Prison Fellowship is the nation’s largest outreach program to prisoners, former prisoners, and their families. The Christian nonprofit is an advocate for criminal justice reform, and offers in-prison programs that facilitate accountability, rehabilitation, and positive reentry. Their Angel Tree program supports some of the millions of children with incarcerated parents by providing Christmas presents each year. You can learn more about their work, and make a donation, on their website prisonfellowship.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
