Akshaya Patra has been providing food for education for more than 17 years. Over so many years of service this NGO witnessed the potential of mid-day meal in transforming the lives of underserved children across the country. With the mission of feeding 5 million children by 2020, Akshaya Patra looks to spread in more locations of India to serve the needy children and better their future. Indeed the mission is humongous, but it is possible to achieve with the support from Government and the society at large.
There are various ways you can get involved with Akshaya Patra to feed hungry children. You can choose to feed by providing food for hungry children by contributing donations. You can also volunteer to offer help through your time and skill in order to feed hungry children. You can also help spread the word about the Foundation’s cause among your circle of family, friends and acquaintances.
It just takes Rs. 1100 to feed a hungry child for one whole year. Imagine if the entire society gets to contribute towards food for education then how many millions of underserved children will get benefitted. Your one step taken to feed food for hungry children has the ability to change the face of future generations by making them literate and healthy. It will break the recurring cycle of poverty, hunger and illiteracy.
