During this difficult time we must all ask ourselves how can we support our local Gainesville community and keep everyone’s morale high. Since 1971, Krishna Lunch has provided healthy vegan/vegetarian meals to the Gainesville/UF community. To do our part in the current crisis, we at Krishna Lunch are now regularly delivering meals to Gainesville’s healthcare heroes who tirelessly serve people throughout North Central Florida. The carefully prepared meals are delivered to drop-off points where doctors, nurses and support staff. Everywhere we go the meals are warmly welcomed.
Recently, we also launched our Krishna CARES program under which we have been providing lunches to those who have been adversely affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic and are in need.
Please consider donating to this effort. With your help we will provide even more free meals to local hospital, healthcare staff and those in need especially those affected economically due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thanks to generous contributions like yours for the past 2 months we have been able to deliver more than 100 Krishna Lunches daily to:
Shands Main ER,
Shands General & Trauma ICU,
Pediatric ER and ICU,
North Regional Florida ICU,
North Regional Florida ER, and several other units,
SIMED Urgent Care,
Malcom Randall VA Medical Center and ER (US Department of Veteran Affairs),
UF Springhill Health center and ER
The Krishna CARES program delivers around 10 lunches daily to those in need especially due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Gratitude for Our Efforts
THANK YOU for your generous support of food to our Emergency Departments at UF Health. It’s kind of your teams to think of our teams during these unprecedented times.
Thank you so much! I’ve been in Gainesville for 30 years and I used to eat Krishna food on the Plaza very often in the early 90s. It was so great to be reminded of that and to eat delicious, nutritious food.
The employees of SIMEDHealth sincerely thank you for your delicious offering of meals for our healthcare heroes! It’s kindness from members of our community like you that give us strength. 💗
Hi! I would just like to say thank you for dropping off lunch/dinner to the ER staff at Shands. We really appreciate it!!
On behalf of my coworkers at Malcolm Randall VA Medical Center I’d like to thank Krishna Lunch for coming earlier this week and providing us with delicious to go boxes! Those of us who scored a box were the envy of our fellow coworkers! I gave my box to one of the nurses who was so excited to get it. Brought back great memories of the amazing lunches she enjoyed as a student at UF! Thanks guys! 🇺🇸 🏥🥗🍱😁🥰
