"Food of Life" kitchen underwent a full reconstruction of the ventilation system, installing high-quality
steam extractors, motors and ventilation outlet pipes. Now the charity kitchen has the opportunity to
prepare more hot food and cooks no longer who cooks porridge now seven days a week in two
shifts, no longer has to do it in steam bubbles, but in suitable kitchen conditions. Despite all the
disruptions in the supply chains, especially for metal products, inflation in the conditions of the
Ukrainian war and the large amount of construction work, this very important project was able to
be implemented right on 2022 for Christmas, finishing on Christmas Eve.

On March 31, Jans Karols Reginis from Poland and Marina Rikovska, volunteers of the "Dzīvības ēdiens"
mission, distribute free food, especially vegetables and fruits, as well as basic necessities to seniors
in the Social housing complex in Riga, Imantas 8 line. In these buildings, the Riga city municipality has
allocated more than 300 apartments to single pensioners, for whom it has become much more
difficult to provide daily food at the current food prices.
Volunteers from Italy and Germany, who study in Latvia in the Erasmus+ exchange program, sort
and pack vegetables and fruits in the "Dzīvības ēdiens" crisis kitchen. Needy people come to Latvia for
help, and now also people from Ukraine who have lost their homes. The Municipal Police also needs
to pay more attention to prevent possible problems between people in the current situation with
political, economic and ethnic tension.

In the rhythm of the year, 21.-22. March is the time when day and night are of equal length and with
each passing day the heat and light of the sun increases.
Only at this time of the year is it possible to get a valuable spice - buds, so God's garden advice
for you especially at this time - collect birch twigs, carry them home, put them in warm water and
soon you will be able to collect buds that will serve health and taste!
Hare Krišna, and here some shots Food for Life mission activity today. We are also part of "Green Latvia" ecology initiative.
