The Akshaya Patra Foundation is the world’s largest non-profit school meal provider, founded in 2000. We believe that no child should be deprived of education because of hunger. We are globally recognised as one of the Top 25 NGOs in the World, and have been studied by leading institutions, including Harvard Business School.

Every day our Food For Education Programme provides free hot, nourishing school lunches to 1.5 million children in over 11,000 government schools across 10 states in India. We recently served our two billionth meal.

The lunches prepared in our state of the art kitchens enable the children we serve to grow and develop healthily, and give them the opportunity to attend school and access the transformative power of education instead of working for food. For many children, this is the only proper meal that they will receive that day.

Fuelled by the energy and security that these meals provide, pupils can enjoy learning and playing, and have the chance to build a brighter future. Our mission is to reach 5 million children by 2020. 

It costs just £10 to provide a child with a hot, nourishing and life changing school lunch every day for an entire year.
