Partnership Spotlight: Guru Krupa Foundation

Akshaya Patra is extremely grateful for the unwavering support and generosity from its donors, sponsors, and partners. 

This month’s partnership spotlight is the Guru Krupa Foundation, which has supported Akshaya Patra since 2016. Over the last five years, the Guru Krupa Foundation contributed several delivery vans and kitchen infrastructure and equipment for the Pune kitchen. Most recently, they helped provide over 7,500 Happiness Kits to the mid-day meal beneficiaries (ages 3-6 years old) in Warangal, Telangana. 

A huge thank you goes to the Guru Krupa Foundation from the Akshaya Patra team and the beneficiaries!
