Same as in the past years, this year also we will be collecting dry food at our 2015 Global Akhand Bhajan.
Hoping to make a significant collection this year and targeting to collect more than 1 Ton (2240 pounds or 908 Kg) during Akhanda Bhajan. That is about One pound (450 grams) of dry food per devotee who attend Akhanda Bhajan.
The centres can start collecting non-perishable food items from now on.
