The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a charity committed to end classroom hunger in India. Head quartered in Bangalore, we implement Mid-Day Meal Scheme in partnership with the Government of India and various State Governments. We serve wholesome mid-day meals to more than 1.8 million children from over 16,856 Government and Government aided schools from across 12 states & 2 Union territories of India. With part support from Government, we receive our funding from many philanthropic businesses, generous donors and well-wishers from across the globe.
Akshaya Patra has been operating since the year 2000 with a vision that ‘no child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger’. With a goal to reach 5 million children every school day by 2025, we need all the support we can get. We incur Rs. 1100 to feed a child for an entire academic year. With your support we are confident that we will accomplish our goal and much more. One may choose to donate for a child or several children, a school, a distribution vehicle or kitchen equipment. Help end classroom hunger in India.
