Krishna Food is our mobile catering and food distribution
outlet. We can be found every week at the Nelson Saturday
market in Montgomery Square from 8am-1pm, and the Motueka Sunday market
in Deck's Reserve carpark from

and events in the future. Keep an eye on our events calendar
for more information.
The purpose of Krishna Food is to encourage tasty
vegetarian eating with both vegetarians and non-vegetarians.
It is well recognised and accepted that the vegetarian diet
is extremely beneficial for one's health, the environment
and your budget. As well as these benefits, the ethics of
the vegetarian diet can not be debated. The Krishna
Conscious philosophy is centred around improving the
spiritual welfare of all living beings, both humans and
animals. For this reason we don't kill animals simply
for the pleasure of eating them. In doing so we are creating
pain and inconvenience for the animal, and are implicating
ourselves heavily in the laws of karma. It is very difficult
to make spiritual progress whilst consuming in a
Krishna Food is also prasadam, or food that has been
cooked in a spirit of devotion for the pleasure of Krishna.
The cooks take special care to maintain cleanliness and a
spiritual atmosphere whilst cooking, which further enhances
the taste and spiritual benefit of eating.
Not only is our food vegetarian and prasadam, but it is
also mostly organic. A lot of the produce used by Krishna
Food comes fresh and direct from Krishna Farm.
The Krishna Food speciality is the $5 Lunch, consisting
of rice, vegetable curry, savouries and tomato chutney. This
is vegan and gluten free, but definitely not taste free!
On the menu you will also find delicious samosas, rice
and koftas in tomato sauce, hot dahl soup, and an array of
delicious sweets like burfi, laddhu and halava.
Krishna Food also offers a catering service for personal
events. A catering menu can be tailored to suit your
requirements, whether it be a full three course meal or a
simple order of sweet treats.
