Akshaya Patra Announces New Partnership with FEED
Akshaya Patra is excited to announce a new partnership with impact-driven brand FEED to provide hot meals to its mid-day meal beneficiaries.
Globally there are nearly 690 million people experiencing hunger – that’s almost 9% of the world’s population. Unlike other global issues, hunger is a solvable problem and can be easily addressed, such as school meal programs. School meals help kids in underserved communities access the nutrition they need to grow and thrive. These free meals also encourage school attendance, ultimately helping kids (especially girls) break out of the poverty cycle.
India makes up nearly 18% of the global population and has over 15% of the world’s undernourished people. FEED saw an opportunity to make make a bigger impact and reach more children around the globe, by partnering with Akshaya Patra to provide meals to those that need it most. What does this mean? When anyone shops FEED, their purchase will help provide school meals to kids in need around the globe, through their partnership with Akshaya Patra, the UN World Food Programme, and No Kid Hungry. FEED creates good products that help feed the world.

Lauren Bush founded FEED in 2007 after seeing the reality of childhood hunger firsthand while traveling with the World Food Programme. Lauren founded FEED to provide a tangible way for her peers to engage in the issue of hunger, stamping a number on every FEED product that transparently represents the number of school meals provided. To this day, every product FEED makes has a number on it, representing the school meals donated with its purchase.
