About Us

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a non-profit organisation feeding millions of underserved children in India. We are committed to eradicating two most critical issues - hunger and malnutrition among children by implementing the Mid-Day Meal Programme in government and government-aided schools. Carrying out the world’s largest NGO-run feeding programme, Akshaya Patra aims to not only fight hunger but also bring children to school.

In Karnataka – a southwestern state in India, we have seven kitchens in five locations, which feed 3,93,962 children in 3,008 schools.
