    The beautiful state of Kerala, known for its backwaters and canals, has been in the news for the flooding caused by incessant rainfall. Popularly known as God’s Own Country, this state is witnessing the worst flood since 1924. Close to 357 deaths have been reported and about 800,000 people displaced. The three wings of the armed forces have been involved in the rescue operations there.

    Relief efforts by Akshaya Patra:
    27 employees from Akshaya Patra, with the help of 4 food distribution vehicles, are feeding families in Alappuzha, Kerala for the past week. The team left from Bengaluru with the ingredients to cook 25,000 meals and have served over 1 Lac meals. Everyday additional ingredients, Chapatis, Drinking water are sent from Bangalore to support the operations @ Alleppey.

    Most of the dishes are prepared in coconut oil to suit the local palate. Dishes like boiled rice and sambar, vegetable pulao, tomato rice, upma, cahapati & curry are served. An average of 7,000 -10,000 meals are being served every day, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. The food is prepared in a college auditorium.

    While the rising water levels have wreaked havoc, the locals have played a major role in ensuring the smooth flow of relief and ensured food distribution. In places where the vehicles can’t be operated, boats are being used to deliver the food. 

    Carrying forward the Foundation’s relief efforts, three more temporary kitchens as well as a kitchen in the neighboring region of Coorg, Karnataka, is being set up. - New locations being Alleppey, Kerala and two in Kushalnagar and Madikeri (Karnataka)

    The feeding cost of the relief efforts amounts to Rs 3 lakh per day. We request your generous support in helping us reach out to more survivors.

    Apart from the feeding program, Akshaya Patra team intends to take up Cleaning & reinstating school infrastructure in the affected areas of Kerala. We have received encouraging response from college going volunteers of Bangalore to support with the drive.
