About Akshaya Patra Foundation

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is an NGO in India headquartered in Bengaluru. Our organisation strives to eliminate classroom hunger by implementing the Mid-Day Meal Scheme in the government schools and government-aided schools.

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 2 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 2 million children from 22,367 schools across 15 states & 2 Union territory of India.
On 28 November 2001, the Supreme Court of India passed a mandate, "Cooked mid-day meal is to be provided in all the Government and Government-aided primary schools in all the states." And, Akshaya Patra was also called upon to provide testimonies to the Supreme Court.

By the time the Ministry of Human Resource Development - Department of School Health and Education extended its support to the initiative in 2003, Akshaya Patra was already reaching out to 23,000 children.

Today, Akshaya Patra has 66 kitchens spread across 15 states & 2 Union territories of India, a result of the successful partnership with the Government of India, various State Governments and generous supporters.
