About Us

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a non-profit organisation feeding millions of underserved children in India. We are committed to eradicating the two most critical issues - hunger and malnutrition among children by implementing the PM Poshan Abhiyaan (formerly known as the Mid-Day Meal Programme) in Government schools and Government-aided schools. 

Carrying out the world’s largest NGO-run feeding programme, the NGO in India aims to not only fight hunger but also bring children to school.

In Karnataka – a south-western state in India, we have eight kitchens in six locations, which feed 3,51,381 children in 3,188 schools.
