EVERY MOMENT COUNTS

“Food for Life” is the largest vegetarian food distribution organisation in the world. We have been operating in Hungary as “Ételt az Életért” (which is “Food for Life” in Hungarian) since 1999. With almost 1,000 volunteers, we distribute 2,000 plates of warm vegetarian food daily in Budapest and hundreds more in various locations around the country. We also distribute 500 tonnes of cooking ingredients to the needy, per annum.

EVERYONE IS IMPORTANT

There are so many categorisations of people in need; the list is endless. But we have an overarching philosophy: No one who approaches us in need is turned away. We want to create a world in which no one is below the poverty line, whatever their background

We have special distribution events at certain points in the year, such as Easter, the “UN International day for helping the poor,” International Children’s Day, and at Christmas

FEEDING THE 10,000

Surely you have heard of Jesus “Feeding the 5,000?” Well, at Christmas every year, we double it, and Feed the 10,000! And not just one day, but 3 days running, on the 24th, 25th & 26th December. We try to make it a real Merry Christmas for those who really need!


This year, 2020, due to COVID, this mass event has been called off due to public health concerns. However, we will be going out to the very poorest areas of the countryside and distributing food to the needy there; warm food, as well as a big bag of long shelf-life food items and other goodies to families.
