Ever wonder what happens to all the leftover food after Krishna Lunch? Naomi, a Krishna House resident, drops them off at St. Francis House and The Salvation Army. "I usually take around 4 buckets of leftovers in my car daily," says Naomi. On average, 25,000 plates of Krishna Lunch are distributed to the homeless each year!

On March 14, 2014, I first stepped foot in the Krishna House. This transition marked the beginning of a deeply profound, memorable, and transforming experience in my life. From the moment I arrived, I felt at home. The Krishna House is a spiritual oasis. The sincere, dedicated, and enthusiastic people who live and serve here inspire one another to grow spiritually. Our time is spent chanting God’s name, hearing about God, and honoring and serving food that has been offered to him. Through devotional service, we develop genuine and loving friendships. Living and serving here has created a deep and lasting impression on my heart.
While living at the Krishna House, I have been studying at Santa Fe College. The college experience has been a major change, to say the least. I grew up in Saranagati Village, a remote ISKCON farm community in British Columbia, Canada. The school I went to had only thirteen students. Now, studying at Santa Fe getting an Elementary Education degree, I am one among hundreds of students. The only way I can manage is because I live in a spiritual environment. Spiritual practice strengthens me, the association uplifts me, and the teachings inspire me.
One day, an older student was telling me in great detail about her work, studies and future occupation. At one point I asked her, “So, what is the goal of your life?” She suddenly paused and looked back at me with an entirely blank stare. “I don’t know,” she said, “I’ve never thought of that before.” Her response struck me. I can’t imagine life without a goal. What is the purpose of doing something if it does not bring us closer to a goal? Sharing the highest goal of loving and serving God or Krishna is the mission of the Krishna House.
