Unlimited Food for Education

Akshaya Patra means an ”Inexhaustible vessel’ from which unlimited food can be drawn.

In 2000, The Akshaya Patra Foundation was founded to address the dual challenges of hunger and education in India. The organization provided nutrition-rich midday meals to extremely underprivileged children in India with the aim of increasing school enrollment, reducing drop-out rates, and improving academic performance. The Akshaya Patra program had a simple vision: “No child in India should be deprived of education because of hunger.” Because of India’s enormous population, this vision was difficult to realize.

    Hi Vin, That is a good and worthwhile activity – thanks for sharing. Have things changed a bit since you were in those schools?
