AnnadaAnam MahadaAnam

Annadaanam Samam Danam Trilokeshu Na Vidhathe

These are the verses from the Vedas, meaning Annadaanam is supreme and incomparable to any charity. Food is the basic requirement for all humans. Thus according to Vedas, the one who does annadaanam to devotees, attains heaven (Punya Loka) in this Universe (Brahmanda) itself. In this whole universe, the creation and its progression depends on food. Hence giving food to the devotees is more than attaining heaven.
