Mission Statement

To provide university campuses and visitors to the temple with vegetarian meals that are subsidized, healthy, freshly prepared, karma-free, and Yoga-friendly (sattvic). Proceeds are used to support a not-for-profit initiative of karma-free food distribution across university campuses, elders in the community, and shelters for the homeless.


    We offer boxed meals for $5!  Possible with the help of volunteers passionate about sharing Karma Free food.


    Krishna Lunch is available 5 days a week. You can select a location near you and reserve your box right here!


    100% vegetarian. No meat, fish or eggs. It is prepared in a completely vegetarian kitchen that follows strict Vedic Standards.


    Cooked with the mood to offer back to the Creator. We use Sattvic ingredients that is not agitating to the mind and body.
