“We in RMS India are delighted to partner with The Akshaya Patra Foundation to provide free mid-day meals to all school-going children. We understand that there is a pattern – the wholesome food act as incentive for parents to send children to school; and once the children are at school, they receive both nutrition and education. Additionally, it further supports education by countering classroom hunger. I was truly amazed to see the Super Kitchens of Akshaya Patra and the level of quality standards maintained by the team. Kudos to the entire team and wish together we reach out to billions of children to feed them and nurture their future.”
CSR Lead, RMS India
“Hunger is not a natural disaster but man-made one to a large extent. Hence, I feel, it is our duty to make India hunger-free. It was pleasant to know about the implementation of the Mid-Day Meal Programme by The Akshaya Patra Foundation. The modus operandi and functioning of this programme deeply touched my heart as I, at Galway Foundation, strongly believe in equal distribution of opportunity which is inevitable to fulfil anyone’s dream. I strongly believe only a hunger-free child can build a strong India. That is why, the Galway Foundation decided to join hands with The Akshaya Patra Foundation to ensure every child in India is free from hunger.”
Head – Galway Foundation
“While we at NCML had heard about Akshaya Patra via various films, news articles, and images about the fabulous work it does tirelessly every day, visiting the schools and kitchens was really an eye-opener and a highly recommended experience for everyone. The impact of a well-balanced nutritious meal goes a long way, and kudos to the team at Akshaya Patra in ensuring that come what may, the children will never go away hungry.”

The Akshaya Patra Foundation’s implementation of the Mid-Day Meal Programme is a great initiative to address two Sustainable Development Goals – Zero Hunger and Quality Education with nutritious and quality food.

“I was totally satisfied, both with the method of disbursement and the target population. Instead of spending money on yearly rituals on my parents’ death anniversary, I donate the amount to Akshaya Patra. Money spent on God’s children should please the God anyway.”

“About 10 years ago, when I was assisting a large municipality on the mid-day meal scheme, I evaluated Akshaya Patra and its delivery capabilities. I was impressed with its intentions, team and operations, and started donating. From supporting a few students initially, to supporting many more now, I intend to keep increasing my contribution with every successive year.”
“I am impressed by Akshaya Patra’s dedication in encouraging children to go to school and ensuring that they don’t remain empty-stomached. I am also overwhelmed by the number of schools and children it supports, which is a yeoman’s service to mankind. I was impressed by initiatives taken by Akshaya Patra, which give underprivileged children a chance to achieve their dreams.”

Director, Campbellsville University, Kentucky
Feeding more than 100,000 children every day is clearly no small task and makes such a big difference to these children. And it goes beyond the simple food since it allows them to go to school and therefore to also receive formal education.
