To get Krishna Lunch you are requested to first get a ticket from our nearby Volunteer Table (in Plaza of the Americas). There you will be able to find about special events, sign-up to volunteer (& get a lunch), leave donations and pickup Krishna Lunch tickets.
“It’s #MeatlessMonday! Today we’re exploring all the on-campus meatless options (excluding the dining halls). One of the most popular sources of meatless food is Krishna Lunch, which is served from 11:00 to 1:30 pm every weekday in the Plaza of the Americas. Krishna Lunch is a great opportunity to hang out with friends, enjoy the outdoors, and eat delicious, affordable meatless meals! ?? …”
“Ask Gators what signature meal to eat while on campus and they will hands down suggest to grabbing Krishna Lunch while strolling through the Plaza of Americas. A gator tradition started in 1971, Krishna serves daily Indian delicacies. For a cheap $5, you receive unlimited servings of the day’s refreshment, entree and dessert…”
“If you’re a Gator or a recent Gator alum, you probably already know that the Hare Krishna religious organization serves lunch every weekday in the Plaza of the Americas. The first Krishna Lunch was served at UF in 1971 and has been served every day of class since.”
“You may be thinking, “I’m a picky eater. I won’t find anything I want to eat there.” Let me be the one to tell you you’re wrong. I am the pickiest eater that has ever lived, and you can still catch me at Krishna every weekday. If I can love it, so can you.”
“Hare Krishna lunch, a popular daily event at the university that has members from the nearby Krishna House feeding vegetarian and vegan lunch to students, presently takes place on a busy pedestrian corner of the plaza.”
“More orange and blue organizations are going green.
This semester Krishna Lunch and some sorority and fraternity houses will begin composting. Composting, in which biodegradable trash is turned into fertilizer, is increasing at UF, said Marie Peralta, the former director of the Student Compost Cooperative.”
“Joyful chanting, warm smiles, a cool morning breeze, and good food. These are just some of the many beautiful things that have had UF students coming back to the Plaza of the Americas every weekday for generations to enjoy a wholesome lunch happily served by members of the local Krishna House, located at 214 NW 14th St.” (page 4)
“When my days are so packed that I don’t get to pack myself a lunch, I know I can always get a delicious vegetarian meal from smiling faces, all served on biodegradable plates! Thank you for always being a constant throughout my college career, UF wouldn’t be the same without Krishna lunch and the community that it brings! 🙂 “

“Creativity and compassion flow from the phalanges connected to the loveliest ladle-ers of such a physical and emotional meal So much human connection my heart wants to explode (or maybe that’s from the 4 servings of banana cream halva idk) “
GRACE, UF Student
“I love Krishna for sustainability efforts and the whole vibe in the plaza! Nowhere is happier on campus than every mid day here 🙂 plus the almond dressing makes my soul sing”
TREVOR, UF Student
“Krishna is the part of the day when I self-reflect when I enjoy it alone and make time to devote 100% of my attention to the person I am enjoying the meal with when I’m not. It is an experience like no other and I couldn’t imagine my college years without it.”
JASMINE, UF Student
“I love Krishna because it is a cultural landmark for the UF community. It serves as a bridge between the hectic lifestyles of students/staff and the calm culture of the Krishna lifestyle. Krishna brings people together from all backgrounds and allows them to bond and relax over food, song, and meditation. Hare Krishna!”
My Home for four years during bachelors program at UF. Fun place for students to hang out and learn the art of beimg happy and living their life to the fullest by serving each other and practicing the art of Mantra Meditation!!
It has been serving delicious vegan/vegetarian meals, known as Krishna Lunch, since the last 30 years.
The place is simple and sweet, with a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and is also a great place to learn more about spirituality.
