SUPPORT AKSHAYA PATRA'S COVID-19 RELIEF SERVICE

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to loom over us, The Government of India has taken a strict combat measure by directing a lockdown of the entire nation. At this great hour of need, The Akshaya Patra Foundation, in close coordination with State Governments & District Administration, has stepped in to provide relief by providing food to thousands of people across the country.

By adhering to all safety and hygiene measures, Akshaya Patra has begun its relief service by providing meal or packed grocery kits to the marginalised and low-income segment of the society comprising of daily wage workers, migrant labourers, construction site workers, and needy people at old age homes and night shelters. Presently, the Foundation is providing food relief in Rajasthan, Karnataka, Telangana, Gujarat, Maharashtra, NCR, Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Chhattisgarh, Odisha, Assam, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand ,Tripura ,West Bengal , Punjab and Jharkhand.

The cost of each cooked meal is ₹25 and the cost of each grocery kit is ₹825. Each grocery kit contains rice, pulses, oil, spices, and vegetables that can serve 2 people with 42 meals for 21 days.
