About me

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is the world’s largest NGO-run midday meal program serving 1.3 million children, in over 9,000 schools, in 9 states of India DAILY. The organization’s twin mission is to eradicate hunger and promote education by providing wholesome, freshly prepared mid day meals to underserved children in government schools. After reaching its initial goal of feeding one million children each school day, Akshaya Patra’s next milestone is to serve 5 million children daily by 2020.

    A public-private partnership, Akshaya Patra combines good management, innovative technology and smart engineering to deliver school lunch at a fraction of the cost of similar programs in other parts of the world. It costs Akshaya Patra only $15 to feed a child for an entire academic year. This meal gives these children an incentive to come to school, stay in school and provides them with the necessary nutrients they need to develop their cognitive abilities to focus on learning. The specially designed, high tech kitchens, source their food stocks from local markets, reducing costs associated with transportation and food spoilage while supporting the local economy.

Please support me in helping these children achieve their academic dreams!
