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 are asked to donate the money saved on food to help others. This month’s #fastforpeace charity is Prison Fellowship, 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. 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
