Feeding 2 Million
Children Everyday

The Challenge & Our Solution

The Challenge

Extreme poverty frequently forces children from low-income families to drop out of school to earn money.

Our Goals

The Akshaya Patra Solution

In 2000, the Government of India declared that every child in its government schools shall receive a meal as part of its plan to address classroom hunger. It launched the Midday Meal program to tackle the enormous task of feeding 120 million children. Over the past 22 years, Akshaya Patra has been a proud partner with the government of India for its Mid-day Meal Program.

This meal is often the only meal a child receives in the day and it serves as a critical intervention to address hunger and education simultaneously. This proposition directly addresses 7 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – blueprints for peace andprosperity.

$25 provides a nutritious school lunch daily for one child for an entire school year. Visit our Donation Page to give the gift of a brighter future today!

Studies conducted by UNICEF and other international organization have demonstrated that children experiencing hunger are more likely to have problems with

Memory and Concentration

because their brains do not have the energy to carry out these functions.
