Prabhuji Food Distribution Program
The Prabhuji Food Distribution Program was founded in 2011 by Prabhuji, H.H. Avadhuta Yogacharya Ramakrishnananda Babaji. It is serving the residents of Greene County and the surrounding areas with fresh free food on a weekly basis.
Prabhuji has envisioned the program with two main objectives:
1. To offer service to the Divine who is present within every living being:
In the Bhagavad-gita (15:15) Krishna says:
The Prabhuji Food Distribution program is an expression of the recognition of every soul as an expression of the Divine. Offering food and supporting people is
an opportunity to offer service to the Divine.
2. To help distribute more evenly the resources of mother earth:
In Hinduism the earth is counted as one of the 7 mothers of the universe, whom one should deeply respect:
ātma-mātā guroḥ patnī
dhenur dhātrī tathā pṛthvī
saptaitā mātaraḥ smṛtāḥ
“One’s own mother, the wife of the guru, the wife of a Brāhmaṇa (priest), the wife of a king, the cow, the nurse, and the earth are known as the seven mothers."
(attributed to Cāṇakya Paṇḍita)
Mother Earth is a mother as well as a Goddess.
The prithvi-suktam of the atharva veda says:
1.1: (Salutations to Mother Earth) The Truth (Satyam), the Cosmic Divine Law (Ritam), the Spiritual Passion manifested in Mighty Initiations, Penances and self dedications to the search of Brahman (by the sages); these have sustained the Mother Earth for ages (Who in turn have supported these in Her Bosom),
1.2: She, Who is to us the Consort of the Past and the Future (being its witness), May She expand our inner life in this World towards the Cosmic Life (through Her Purity and Vastness).
4.1: (Salutations to Mother Earth) In Her resides the Four Directions of the World; in Her is contained Food which She manifests when Ploughed,
4.2: She sustains the various Lives living in Her; May She, the Mother Earth, bestow on us the Ray of Life present even in Food.
Mother Earth is so generous and compassionate but still her gifts are distributed unevenly and unjustly by her children.
Every 3.6 seconds someone in the world dies of hunger…
Every year 15 million children die of hunger throughout the world…
One of every 8 children under the age of 12 in the United States goes to sleep hungry every night…
For the same price as just a single missile, an entire school of hungry children can eat daily for a period of five years…
Prabhuji’s vision for this program is to render our humble service to mother goddess earth by rescuing food from being thrown away and distributing it to those who need it.
The food distribution program is operating every Thursday at 4:00 pm. We serve anyone who comes without any discrimination or prerequisites.
