There is a small tiffin stall between the supermarket and bookstore, inside the ashram. It generally opens for chai before darshan, chai and tiffin after darshan, and some snacks may also be obtained here. Normally, it is open during the day and closes sometime after lunch.

There are two canteens at the Whitefield ashram. One is the Western Canteen, which is inside the ashram directly behind the darshan hall. Breakfast is after darshan. Devotees are welcome to volunteer as sevaks in the Western Canteen. Meals are western, non-spicy, and often western deserts are on the menu.
