FIS mid year global giving
BE PART OF FEEDING THE WORLD CAMPAIGN
The 4th annual global giving back campaign is centred around food insecurity. In India, FIS has partnered with The Akshaya Patra Foundation that works relentlessly towards eliminating classroom hunger. Built on a Public-Private Partnership model to implement the Government’s PM POSHAN Abhiyaan (earlier called the Mid-Day Meal Scheme) in India, Akshaya Patra aims to counter malnutrition and support the right to education of children who hail from challenging socio-economic backgrounds.
The Foundation serves hot, hygienic, tasty and nutritious mid-day meals to 2 million government school children every day from its 67 kitchens spread across 15 states and 2 union territories in India. With the vision that ‘No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger’, it requires a minimal support of INR1,500 to feed 1 child for 1 academic year, which is approximately 232 school days but all participants can choose their contribution amount as per their personal willingness.
Under this collaborative virtual food drive, every contribution of INR1,500 nourishes one child in school for one academic year. The power of each meal prepared through your support will contribute to the overall well-being and happy childhood of deserving children. Through this persistent endeavour, we not only ensure that children have access to regular meals but also address the issue of classroom hunger, enhancing their ability to concentrate and excel in their studies.
