Who We Are

Akshaya Patra (Aak-sh-ayah pa-tra) is the world’s largest NGO school meal program, providing hot, nutritious lunches to over 2 million children in 20,000 schools, across India every day.​

Akshaya Patra Canada engages volunteers and donors in Canada to raise funds and awareness in support of the foundation’s mission.


No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger.


Mission At Akshaya Patra, we dream of a world where families won’t have to choose between food and education for their children. A wholesome meal prompts children, especially girls, to stay out of the workforce and attend school thereby addressing both classroom hunger and education. With the continued kindness of donors and supporters, Akshaya Patra will meet its goal to serve more children throughout India.

We Provide Unlimited Food For Education

The impact of an Akshaya Patra meal is more than that of simply satiating a child’s hunger for the day; it transforms lives.
