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.

September’s #fastforpeace Charity
Each month, fastforpeace.org invites people to donate the money they’ve saved on food to help others. Although the 2019 hurricane season has just begun, Hurricane Dorian has left thousands homeless and dozens dead in the Bahamas. Of the many organizations providing help, Food for the Hungry has been selected as the #fastforpeace charity for September. Besides current relief efforts in the Bahamas, they work in more than 20 countries around the world, inspired by their “belief that every person has intrinsic value, and that it’s our responsibility to advocate for the poor and marginalized without regard to race, creed or nationality and without adverse distinction of any kind.” Food for the Hungry is rated 4 stars by Charity Navigator, who has confirmed their efforts on the ground in the Bahamas. You can learn more about Food for the Hungry and make a donation on their website.
“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
