Akshaya Patra served over 1 lakh meals in Gorakhpur’s flood-affected areas
While Gorakhpur and the places around the city have been recently hit with floods, The Akshaya Patra Foundation has been tirelessly working on the ground. Over 1 lakh meals have been provided so far. The survivors are being served vegetable pulao, peas pulao, masala rice and theplas. The food is being packed individually in disposable aluminum foil containers and dispatched to the flood-affected areas. This has been made possible with the help of Kitchen on Wheels – a customised mobile vehicle designed by Akshaya Patra. The vehicle has been stationed in Gorakhpur since August 26, 2017.
The Government of India recognised the Foundation’s efforts in the field of child development. The award was given on November 14, 2017
The Akshaya Patra Foundation launched the ‘Swachh Vidyarthi, Swachh Vidyalaya, Swachh Gruha’ initiative to achieve Swachh Bharat on Oct 2, 2017 at our HK Hill kitchen
