During the day, Food For Life Board Member Borut Vidmar presented the charitable work of the organization to Slovenian president Mr. Danilo Tuerk. President Tuerk congratulated on the good work Food for Life is doing and after reading the flyer asked to take 100 flyers to personally distribute himself.

Food for Life Slovenia was officially established on 21st of March 2008 (Gaura Purnima), but has existed informally since 1992 when volunteers first prepared hot meals for Bosnian refugees. The organisation now has more then 40 volunteers and is working closely with the Center for Social Work in Ljubljana and Friends of Youth, distributing thousand meals to homeless and socially depriviledged youth in Ljubljana every month.
