Akshaya Patra has signed a MoU (Memorandum of Understanding) with the Maharashtra Government and the Tata Trust to facilitate the setting up of a centralised kitchen project in the state that will provide wholesome food to Ashram-Shalas. The pilot project is expected to launch in Mundhegaon in Nashik on 1st August, and Kambalgaon in Palghar on 15th August.

"From December 15, we will launch it for the entire state, especially in the districts where malnutrition is prevalent," he added.
