Who knows our story better than you – the one reading this on Akshaya Patra’s website? Your tremendous support to our cause of ‘Unlimited Food for Education’ has taken us from one kitchen serving 1,500 school children back in the year 2000 to 27 kitchens in 11 states that feed over 1.6 million school children every day.
We are excited to share that you can now read more about us through a book written by none other than Rashmi Bansal. Rashmi is an IIM Ahmedabad alumnus who is known for her book ‘Stay Hungry, Stay Foolish’. Her new release - ‘God's Own Kitchen: The Inspiring Story of Akshaya Patra - A Social Enterprise Run by Monks and CEOs’ showcases the unconventional path taken by our founders.
This is the exciting story of spiritualists and capitalists coming together to launch a unique start-up. And taking it to scale. A ‘Made in India’ success story using the head, the heart and a whole lot of soul.
