Akshaya Patra

Unlimited Food for Education

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation headquartered in Bengaluru, India. Our organisation strives to eliminate classroom hunger by implementing the Mid-Day Meal Scheme in the government schools and government-aided schools. Alongside, Akshaya Patra also aims at countering malnutrition and supporting the right to education of socio-economically disadvantaged children.

Since 2000, Akshaya Patra has been concerting all its efforts towards providing fresh and nutritious meals to children on every single school day. We are continuously leveraging technology to multiply our reach. The state-of-the-art kitchens have become a subject of study and have attracted curious visitors from around the world.

Our partnership with the Government of India and various State Governments, along with the persistent support from corporates, individual donors, and well-wishers have helped us to grow from serving just 1,500 children in 5 schools in 2000 to serving 1.76 million children.

Today, Akshaya Patra is the world’s largest (not-for-profit run) Mid-Day Meal Programme serving wholesome food every school day to over 1.76 million children from 15,668 schools across 12 states in India.

  • Isn’t a hearty meal the highlight of the day? Nothing satiates the mind, body and soul, as much a wholesome meal.

    A nourishing, fulfilling meal is a necessity for school children, not just to be healthy and fit at the crucial stages of development, but also concentrate in class and enjoy play time. The free school lunch is a big incentive in ensuring this and also in keeping children in school. Having one square meal taken care of every school day relieves the economic pressures for socially-disadvantaged parents; this keeps the dreams of young children alive, as they continue their education and bathe in the light of learning.

    The Akshaya Patra Foundation, which operates the world’s largest school lunch programme, ensures that the benefits of education and a fulfilling meal aren’t a luxury for India’s children. Feeding over 17.6 lakh children in 15,000+ schools across 12 states every day, Akshaya Patra works in partnership with the Central and State Governments of India to further its cause of ‘unlimited food for education’. Armed with a vision that no child be deprived of education because of hunger, the Foundation aims to reach out to 50 lakh children by 2025. Prepared in state-of-the-art kitchens with utmost adherence to quality and hygiene standards, the Foundation’s nutritious meals are transported to schools in customised, GPS-enabled vehicles, so that children get to relish their lunch fresh and piping hot.

    You can make a difference to the lives of India’s bright young future, by nourishing the dreams of young children. Contribute today to realise the dream of childhood free from classroom hunger.
