2021: A Year of Partnerships

2020 was a year like no other–a year of change, challenges, and adversity. However, it was also a year of growth, resilience, and strength.  It showed how coming together and standing firm in your partnerships during times of need is powerful.

Akshaya Patra was blessed to have the unwavering support and dedication from the organization’s donors and partners to ensure the mid-day meal beneficiaries and their families were supported during the pandemic.  As a result, over 118 million meals have been served to migrant workers, mid-day meal beneficiaries, and their families. 

It’s as Margaret J. Wheatley says, ‘There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.’ So for 2021, Akshaya Patra will be focusing on strengthening its partnerships, forming new connections, and coming together under a united mission and goal of alleviating classroom hunger one meal at a time.
