The Akshaya Patra Foundation was built on the idea that no child should be deprived of education due to hunger—so far there has been no turning back. When meals are cooked for millions of children, it becomes our priority to ensure that the kitchen operations are efficient and food is delivered to schools on time.
For our organisation to continue operating on a large scale, donation options have been made available on the website. From vehicle donation to sponsoring kitchen equipment or even donating in the memory of someone; you can choose how you want to support Akshaya Patra. In an effort achieve quality as well as quantity, we ensure that the kitchen equipment is sustainable and the delivery vehicles are safe for distributing hot meals every day.
You can make a contribution of your choice and help us achieve our mission of feeding 5 million children by 2020.
Donations options are available on the website for Indian and International donors. At The Akshaya Patra Foundation, it is a promise kept to feed a wholesome meal to the underserved children across many states.
