From Aims and Objectives – Food for Life Global (ffl.org):

FOOD FOR LIFE Global is a nonprofit charitable organization with regional offices in Delaware, USA and Ljubljana, Slovenia. Food for Life Global is the international headquarters for Food for Life – the world’s largest vegan food relief and is funded mainly by member donations.

From Wikipedia:

Food for Life Global is a non-profit vegan food relief organization founded in 1995 to serve as the headquarters for Food for Life projects. Although Food for Life Global has roots in ISKCON, it is a completely independent non-profit organization that supports the work of Food for Life projects under the management of ISKCON as well as many other non-profits that are not. Its network of 211 affiliates span the globe, with projects occupying over 60 countries. Volunteers provide up to 2,000,000 free meals daily. Food For Life engages in various sorts of hunger relief, including outreach to the homeless, provision for disadvantaged children throughout India, and provision for victims of natural disasters around the world.

With roots in India, the Food for Life project views itself as being a modern-day revival of the ancient Vedic culture of hospitality and service to those in need. It was conceived of and began in 1974 as local food relief in Mayapur, India as part of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. In 1995, the headquarters was established in Maryland, USA to help support the expansion of the project.
