Our History

The Akshaya Patra Foundation strives to tackle the issues of classroom hunger and educational access in India. By providing free freshly cooked, nourishing school lunches through our Food For Education Programme in government and government aided schools, we aim to fight malnutrition and increase the enrolment of children in schools across India.


This not-for-profit organisation has been conferred as the world’s largest NGO-run mid-day meal programme. Built on a Public-Private Partnership model, Akshaya Patra combines good management, innovative technology, and smart engineering to deliver a nutritious and hygienic school lunch every school day.


You can provide a essential grocery kit to an adult for meals for a month for as little as £8 in India
