Prasadam and Knowledge
Prabhupada speaks out

"...the best humanitarian work is to give knowledge to humanity, not that one is suffering for want of food and... If give some food that is good work. But that is not sufficient. I may give food that is all right. You give. We also give prasadam free. But that does not mean simply by giving prasadam. we are silent. We give knowledge also. This is Krsna consciousness movement. Food automatically you have to give. That is... There is no prohibition. But at the same time knowledge... Just like the same example. If you have got some children. If you don’t give them education simply feed them that is not your proper duty. You must give knowledge. Krsna consciousness movement is therefore giving them knowledge."

Srimad Bhagavatam lecture on September 9, 1975 in Vrindavana, India.
