Akshaya Patra Foundation cooks, transports and serves hot nutritious meals to 1.6 million government school children in 13,829 government schools in 12 States in India, every day.
We operate 34 kitchens, 12 of which are ISO certified, the rest work on ISO standards.
As a part of a public private partnership, Akshaya Patra supplements subsidies from the government with it's own fund raising effort with 5 cents per meal.
It takes only $15.00 to feed a child for entire school year.
Since inception, we have served 2.7 billion meals and our goal is to feed 5 million children daily by the year 2020.
