Feed Vulnerable Communities in India

With 2020 coming to a close, I can’t help but feel truly grateful for all that we have. Many of us have endured a lot this year, but none more then those who do not have food on the table because of the effects of COVID-19.

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is an NGO that cooks, transports and serves 1.8 million midday meals to school children in 19,257 schools across 12 states and 2 Union Territories in India, every day.

Children attending these schools come from low-income families who typically make less than $2.00 per day and are unable to afford vegetables, grains, and milk – basically, the bare necessities a child needs to grow.

With schools now closed, they have shifted their focus to COVID-19 Relief. As the nation goes under complete lockdown to contain COVID-19 outbreak, Akshaya Patra has been aiding the Government’s efforts by providing food relief to vulnerable communities, such as migrant laborers and homeless people. The Foundation is doing this through its network of kitchens, working closely with the Government of India, State Governments and other civic administrations.

With the holidays approaching, I hope that you would consider donating to this organization that is doing all they can for families who have much much less than we have. And if you donate by December 31st, your donation will be matched completely!
