We dedicate this milestone to your constant support and trust in us!

Back in the year 2000, we began our journey to provide healthy and wholesome school meals to children in Government schools and Government-aided schools by implementing the Mid-Day Meal Programme. We supported 1,500 children in five schools in Bengaluru, Karnataka.

Your support sustainably transformed our journey and this is where we are in 2021:

  • Programmes: Mid-Day Meal Programme, Anganwadi Feeding Programme, Breakfast Programme, Meal Plate Programme, and Holistic Development Programmes.
  • Reach: 18,00,907 Mid-Day Meal Beneficiaries in 19,039 Schools across 58 Locations of 13 States and 1 Union Territory and 1,39,272 Anganwadi Beneficiaries in 6,251 Centres across 10 Locations of 4 States.
  • Disaster Relief: Food relief during situations like floods, earthquakes, cyclones and the pandemic. We also extended our support to Nepal during the devastating earthquake in 2015.

You also strengthened our reach with the COVID-19 Relief Programme

Because of you, we could provide food and essentials to millions of people in need across the country. So far, we have:

  • Served 7.63-crore cooked meals to the needy
  • Supported 64,296 marginalised families with Family Happiness Kits and 15.03-lakh grocery kits
  • Ensured well-being of mid-day meal beneficiaries with 16.86-lakh Happiness Kits
  • Cared for pregnant women, nursing mothers, and children with 8,000 Shakti Kits
  • Initiated School Reopening Sanitisation Project to support the safe reopening of schools
  • Encouraged vulnerable people to take the vaccination, by providing 43,935 Raksha Kits.
