The Akshaya Patra Foundation in Chhattisgarh
The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a non-profit organisation feeding millions of underserved children in India. It works towards eliminating two crucial issues – hunger and malnutrition in India – by implementing its school lunch programme in Government and Government-aided schools. Carrying out the world’s largest NGO-run feeding programme, Akshaya Patra aims to not only fight hunger with nutritious meals but also bring children to school.
In Chhattisgarh, the Foundation’s ISO-certified centralised kitchen in Bhilai currently feeds 29,835 children in 192 schools. It was established in January 2009.
The cost of feeding a child for a whole year, thanks to Government subsidy and provision of foodgrains, is merely Rs 950. Donate now to support children’s education!
