Members of the organisation will make an attempt to prepare 5000 vegetarian food items, totalling around five tonnes, using over 250 community kitchens here, Rishi Nityapragya, an ALF member, said.
"The present Guinness record is of 4600 food items, and we will try to break it in the presence of Guruji (Sri Sri Ravi Shankar) during the event which we call Annan Brahm or annakoot," he added.
All the ingredients used for cooking will be organic, chemical free and the preparation would be based of ayurvedic principles.As many as 1.25 lakh people from across the country are expected to participate in the event.
He said the participants will prepare specialities according to their regional affiliation. The food will then be distributed as 'Prashad' to nearly 25 thousand underprivileged children here, he added.
Nityapragya said that this was an occasion after nearly six years that the ALF founder will visit Gujarat and stay for nearly a week
