Krishna Lunch So Cal is a new creative outreach in southern California aimed at providing low-cost on-campus meals and meaningful connections to college-age students as food insecurity sharply rises.

“Beyond being a nutritious food hub while addressing food insecurity among students, we envision Krishna Lunch So Cal as a place where the students and other community members can come together, share thoughts, and build connections,” said Govinda Datta Dasa, founder of Krishna Lunch So Cal. “Nutritious food, good connection to the community and opportunities to give back to the community are being recognized worldwide as great formulas to a fulfilling life.”

Students will receive a nutritious vegetarian meal consisting of six items for a suggested donation of just $5. The truck will be available Monday-Friday, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m., offering a different menu every day. It’s also strategically parked near a busy intersection across from the UCLA Medical Center on 900 Broxton Ave. “We’re not profit-motivated. We want to provide an inviting atmosphere where everyone can feel a sense of belonging,” Govinda Datta noted.
