On the auspicious occasion of Akshaya Tritiya, May 10th, 2024, ISKCON’s GBC Ministry of Cow Protection and Agriculture (MCPA), will host a pioneering event via Zoom, addressing the critical issue of “Hidden Hunger” and unveiling the Feed the Earth project. Hidden Hunger,” malnutrition caused by a deficiency of vital vitamins and minerals, silently undermines the health and vitality of over 2 billion people worldwide. Unlike traditional hunger, hidden hunger doesn’t manifest in hunger pangs but severely impacts physical and intellectual development.

The Feed the Earth project is a beacon of hope, an extension of the MCPA, illuminating the path toward sustainable living. By tackling hidden hunger at its roots through regenerative agriculture, ecosystem restoration, community empowerment, and policy reform, ISKCON is committed to nurturing both the earth and its inhabitants.

In a statement to ISKCON News, Kalakantha Das, ISKCON’s MCPA, shared the profound significance of the Feed the Earth project. Reflecting on the ministry’s journey, he highlighted its evolution from conception to fruition, marked by dedication and effort. “Launching the research teams on sustainable living this Akshaya Tritiya, we’re not just addressing hunger but building systems of abundance,” Kalakantha remarked.
