WITH help from generous donors, the Hare Krishna Food For Life organisation has been able to feed many people in need throughout Nelson Mandela Bay and now plans to expand its services by providing food to at least 1 000 people every day.

The organisation was established in Port Elizabeth 40 years ago, but only officially opened their centre in Newton Park 17 years ago.

“We feed an average of 500 people in areas such as Helenvale, Gelvandale, Greenbushes, Missionvale, Motherwell, New Brighton, Kleinskool, Schauderville, Booysen Park and Bloemendal,” said Svetadvip Das, who is the main representative of the Iskcon and Hare Krishna Food for Life organisation.
