The Prince of Peace Feeding program was established to provide food for the indigent of Porumamilla, India. The program consists, primarily, of the distribution of food to the poorest of the poor. They are members of the lowest caste and are living in abject poverty. There are two basic programs; a daily hot meal program and a monthly food distribution program. A daily hot meal is provided at a centrally located pavilion. The meal consists of steamed rice, lentil dahl curry, naan and yogurt and is prepared at the Blessed Brian Home. An average of 150 people are fed daily. Food is delivered monthly to individuals and families in need and consist of a nutritionally balanced 55 lb. food “basket” consisting of rice, puffed rice, cracked wheat, noodles, lentils, flour, coconut, spices, and cookies. In addition, sanitary care items (face soap, toothpaste and laundry detergent) are included. Blankets are also provided as needed. This food basket is intended to provide one basic meal per day per month for 60 plus individuals and families. In total, more than 4,500 kilograms (10,000 lbs.) per month and 55,000 kilograms (120,000 lbs.) annually feeds the impoverished. (The monthly baskets are assembled by the children of the Blessed Brian Home.)
Significant funding for these feeding programs are through the great generosity and kindness of the members of Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Olathe, Kansas. The Prince of Peace Pavilion is currently being used as a hostel to house 80 boys, from nearby villages, attending schools in Porumamilla in grades 5th through 10th.
