2018-09-21

Business Standard

Cooking may not be rocket science, but when you are feeding over 1.7 million children in 14,314 schools, it could be a fit case for employing the latest technologies to ramp up operational efficiency. Akshaya Patra, the world’s largest NGO-run mid-day meal programme with 38 kitchens spread across 12 states, is one such mammoth enterprise, and it’s using cutting edge technologies to help fulfil its goal of alleviating hunger among school children.

Shridhar Venkat currently serves as CEO of The Akshaya Patra Foundation. His search for existential purpose in life made him quit a corporate career and join the Akshaya Patra Foundation, a not-for-profit organization with a vision that ‘No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger’.

MTR Foods in collaboration with The Akshaya Patra Foundation has pledged to sponsor healthy mid-day meals for around 6,000 students from 60 schools in Mangaluru and Surathkal, as a part of the CSR programme - ‘Namma Makkalu-Namma MTR.’
