The Akshaya Patra Foundation is a not for profit organization which strives to eliminate classroom hunger by implementing the Mid-Day Meal Scheme in government schools and government-aided schools.

Prior to the lockdown, the Foundation fed 1.8 million children every school day. With the outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic in the country, schools were shut down to avoid the spread of infections. However, the need to have access to nutritious meals has become even more necessary for our beneficiaries despite the halt in serving Mid-day meals.

The Akshaya Patra has come up with an interim intervention known as the ‘’HAPPINESS KIT’’ to provide all the nutritional value we served in our warm cooked meals. The items included in the box ensures that the children & their families meet the required nutritional levels to gain immunity, maintain health & hygiene and focus on their education.  Low socio-economic households have lost their source of income and have drained out their savings too. Let’s step up our effort to help them survive through these tough times.

This is where you come in.
We request you to contribute towards providing Happiness Kit @ Rs. 550/ per kit to Government school children & their families.  Every Individual donation, no matter how big or small, will help fill a hungry stomach. 

In addition to supporting these children and their families, your contribution makes you eligible to receive a 50% tax exemption on your donation amount under Section 80G of the Indian Income Tax Act (applicable for donations of ₹ 500 and above).
