About me

Akshaya Patra means "the unlimited bowl of abundance and sustenance." Beginning in 2000 serving 1,500 meals to a small group of local schools, with frugal innovation and a focus on efficiency and scalability, the organization has built world-class, highly efficient kitchens that can cook anywhere between 10,000 to 250,000 meals within 6 hours.

Over 18 years, Akshaya Patra has scaled to currently serving over 1.7 million meals in 14,250 government schools in 12 States in India daily. Akshaya Patra sources local produce, operates 39 centralized and 2 decentralized kitchens and transports hot, nutritious meals in custom designed vans up to a distance of 40 kms. Often being the only meal in the day for the child, it serves as a critical intervention addressing both, hunger and education.

The Akshaya Patra Foundation USA is a registered 501 (c)3 non profit with the highest 4 star rating on Charity Navigator. We support the work of The Akshaya Patra Foundation in India with raising funds and awareness for feeding, kitchen building and program sustenance costs. The Akshaya Patra Foundation USA raises 10-12% of the total budget. We share the vision that no child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger.
