The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a not-for-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 schools and government-aided schools. Carrying out the world’s largest feeding programme, Akshaya Patra aims to not only fight hunger but also bring children to school.
In Telangana – a southeastern state in India, we have a centralised kitchen in the capital city - Hyderabad which reaches out to 62,020 children in 463 schools.
Our Kitchens in Telangana
We began our mid-day meal operations in Telangana in October 2008 with our first kitchen in Hyderabad. The kitchen was extended in 2015 to accommodate more cauldrons with the intention of feeding more children.
