- UK PM Congratulates ISKCON Cardiff Food Relief -

Prime Minister of the UK, Boris Johnson, congratulated the ISKCON members of Cardiff engaged in distributing free meals during the pandemic, this week via a Zoom meeting. The Hare Krishna Food For Life (FFL) program in Cardiff, Wales has served over 100,000 meals in this period, headed up by Tarakanatha Dasa. In a jovial manner, PM Johnson, during the Zoom meeting, confessed his familiarity with the cause telling the story of when he was 17 years old he took his girlfriend at the time (now wife) to get “free curry” at the ISKCON-London temple, as he was “so poor” it was the only place he could treat her for lunch at that time.
