Acting Continuously for Hunger Eradication – Annapurna Day

As the Rotary Club year began on 1st July, Rotary Districts across India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan celebrated the day as “Annapurna Day.” Annapurna is a Sanskrit name which literally means “full of food” (feminine form), but is normally translated as Goddess of the Harvests. In Hinduism, Annapurna is “… the universal and timeless kitchen-goddess … the mother who feeds. Without her there is starvation, a universal fear: This makes Annapurna a universal goddess

The Food for Life Annamrita project, under the management of IFRF joined hands with various clubs in Rotary Districts 3140 by providing meals to 6820 underprivileged children in various slums of Mumbai.

ISKCON Relief Foundation’s Food for Life Annamrita project is the premier project amongst FFL Global’s international family of affiliates.
