Inspiring Progress to End Hunger
“Progress is impossible without change.” – Walt Disney
Progress is fundamental in Akshaya Patra’s mission and goals. By providing unlimited food for education, Akshaya Patra and its partners are paving the way for change and alleviating hunger in the lives of millions of children.
Over the last 20 years, Akshaya Patra has progressed from providing only a few hundred meals to now over 1.8 million meals each day. Since the COVID-19 lockdown began in March 2020, we have served more than 175 million meals for food relief to migrant workers, mid-day meal beneficiaries, vulnerable individuals, and marginalized communities in India.
