KUCHING, Jan 29: International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon) Kuching today treated members of the public to 700 vegetarian meal packets at the 7th Mile Market.

When met by reporters, Iskcon Kuching chairman S. Krishnarao, known as Prabhu Krispa, said the meals were distributed as part of the Hare Krishna Food For Life programme, which is one of their monthly activities.

“It is one of the charity activities we carry out twice a month, sometimes once a month, and at least 700 packets of vegetarian food are distributed,” he said.

“As I went around this morning, I could feel the warmth and the heartfelt thanks from our receivers from all works of life.

“I can’t help but feel the cohesiveness that exists among us in Sarawak,” he said. — DayakDaily
