Akshaya Patra serves its Billionth meal to Government school children
On August 2012, Akshaya Patra reached an important milestone of serving its billionth meal. Now, even as students increase and volumes expand, The Akshaya Patra Foundation has not lost sight of its core principle - serving tasty and nutritious food to children. To celebrate the grand milestone of its billionth meal, the Foundation got music director Shankar Mahadevan and lyricist Javed Akhtar to compose a theme track for them.
The cost of the kitchen was sponsored by Rural Electrification Corporation
