Mid-Day Meals

The Mid-Day Meal Programme is designed to help promote the nutritional standing of underprivileged, school-age children enrolled in government and government-aided schools. Akshaya Patra implements the programme by serving children nutritious hot, cooked meals every school day. Meals are cooked at the Foundation’s 55 kitchens following stringent safety and quality measures, with menus curated to suit the tastes of children in every location. Meals are delivered via customised vehicles designed to keep food hot and fresh until served.

Akshaya Patra strives, through this programme, towards achieving two critical UN Sustainable Development Goals: Zero Hunger and Quality Education, with the preliminary goal of eliminating classroom hunger in India.
