The Akshaya Patra Foundation strives to tackle the issues of hunger, malnutrition and education. We do this by providing freshly cooked, nourishing meals through our Food For Education Programme in India and Beat the Hunger Program in the UK
We serve over 1.7 million children a freshly cooked, hot lunch every day in nearly 14,000 schools in India across the country. Through our state-of- the-art kitchens, our partnership with the Government of India and the generosity of our supporters, we can serve a hot and nutritious school meal to a child for just 5p.
We have now brought our operations to the UK to tackle extreme food poverty in this country. We aim to end hunger in the UK by serving nutritionally balanced, vegetarian, freshly cooked meals to holiday clubs, schools, homeless people and seniors. Using a combination of frugal innovation, economies of scale, and our proven capabilities to feed large numbers, we are well equipped to feed disadvantaged people at highly reduced costs.
