In April 2015, having watched a speech given at the United Nations General Assembly in New York and then, six months later in October 2015, after having had a chance conversation with delegate at a conference in Salt Lake City, Utah we were inspired into existence with the clear purpose of replicating the concept of Langar everywhere so there will be no hunger anywhere.
Langar is the concept of free, compassionate food for all regardless of faith, gender, age or social status.
In June 2016, after having travelled to Malawi for the very first time, we met a 10 year old boy from Toyoyo village called Fraser. Fraser gave us our mission to spread Food & Freedom around the world.
Giving a hand up and not ‘just’ a handout
What does this mean?
Keeping the communities we serve, totally, reliant on us is a finite solution. Whilst we recognise the value of starting a food serving program in the short term, our long term goal must always be to create an environment within which people can have the equality of opportunity to help build and shape their own future.
We commit to start serving where there is a genuine, need immediately. However, within 24 months of starting serving at a location, we commit to establishing a local, supplementary, self-sustaining food system so the people we serve never become subservient to us or others.
The Zero Hunger with Langar movement actively seeks to inspire motivated people to come together. These individuals then assemble local, diverse, teams to start using their time, energy and resources to begin creating a world free from hunger right from within their own respective countries.
• To always serve others first
• To always eat last
• To always keep things simple
• To always give generously
• To always receive graciously
Community volunteers (often parents and villagers) get together to form local serving circles to help prepare, cook
and serve meals daily to children who attend the school.
Every month field officers from our dedicated ground team, personally, visit each school to deliver a specially formulated Zero Hunger with Langar food mix, that has been fortified with essential vitamins and minerals, as well record progress and monitor the well being of the children we serve.
As soon as daily serving is stable and attendance is increasing we source and, if required, lease farming land owned by the local community, so our agronomists can devise a grow plan to start laying the groundwork for the, supplementary, self sustaining zero organics food system.

“We believe the best way to bring our cause to life is to continually foster, like our lives depend on it, a culture of co-operation, trust and loyalty, upon which the 'how and what' we do on the ground, in each country we go to, will naturally be founded.”
