Food For Life has been providing Melbourne communities with free and affordable vegetarian meals so that anyone  in need of food can access it at any one of our distribution locations. This mission began in the early 1970s when Hare Krishna founder Srila Prabhupada stated  “let every hungry man in Melbourne come and eat”.

Since then, our Food For Life volunteers, chefs, and donors have graciously offered their time, money, and energy to help feed the hungry and needy of Melbourne.

Food For Life is for everyone, regardless of your religious, cultural, or even dietary background. If you live in Melbourne and  are in need of a free or affordable nutritious meal,  you can find it at the Hare Krishna Melbourne temple  on any day of the week.

Who Can Enjoy Food For Life?

In short:  Food For Life has its roots in Hare Krishna culture, but it is a globally reaching movement that seeks to address poverty, hunger, and injustice in multiple cities around the world. It does this through environmentally-friendly means that completely avoids any cruelty towards animals and promotes a vegetarian diet without compromising the supply of   daily meals to a large number of people.

Food For Life Melbourne opens its doors to whoever is in need of our services. Our goal is to feed the hungry people of Melbourne – not to convert anyone to the Hare Krishna faith. No matter your background, we welcome you to make use of our Food For Life program.

Where Does The Food For Life Money Go?

Food For Life is a charitable cause, and therefore, we must adhere to the strict regulations of auditing that Australia conducts for its not-for-profit organisations. For this reason, you can have the peace of mind that any donations you make to Food For Life Melbourne – or to any of our centres around Australia – is going towards providing more resources to cook and distribute meals to the needy and homeless.

It’s also worth mentioning that every donation you make towards  Food For Life Melbourne is tax deductible.
