About Us

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 PM Poshan Abhiyaan (formerly known as the Mid-Day Meal Programme). 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 south-eastern state in India, we have four centralised kitchens which currently feed 1,60,169 children in 1,856 schools.
