The Akshaya Patra Foundation is an NGO in India headquartered in Bengaluru. The 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-artkitchens have become a subject of study and have attracted curious visitors from around the world.

Their partnership with the Government of India and various State Governments, along with the persistent support from corporates, individual donors, and well-wishers have helped grow from serving just 1,500 children in 5 schools in 2000 to serving 1.8 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 1.8 million children from 19,039 schools across 12 states & 2 Union territories of India.

Today, Akshaya Patra has 52 kitchens spread across 12 states & 2 Union territories of India, a result of the successful partnership with the Government of India, various State Governments and generous supporters.

Most of us have lived in a safe environment where we have food to eat and a shelter to stay. Whereas, some children may not have the same luxury. By supporting Akshaya Patra, we hope that more children can be fed. More happiness, less hunger.
