Food for Life's primary mission is “to bring about peace and prosperity
in the world through the liberal distribution of pure vegetarian
meals prepared with love.”

and operating support to its vegetarian hunger relief program and various

•Coordinating and expanding the distribution of vegan/vegetarian
meals all over the region.

In its purest form, food has the innate ability to break down barriers and heal
body, mind and soul. Food for Life therefore serves only the purest of
food—food that is devoid of animal suffering, prepared with love and served
with love. Furthermore, recognizing that the ultimate solution to the problem
of hunger is the elimination of poverty, Food for Life not only provides direct
food distribution services, but also addresses, through its affiliate programs,
such diverse but related issues as education, environmental health and
sustainability, animal welfare, and health care.
Food for Life's mission flows from its core values of charity and respect for all
living things; its services, therefore, are provided without regard to race, creed,
color, religion, sex, community, or nationality.
Food for Life's slogan is: “There is no greater gift.”
