Sponsor Plates For Children
The Akshaya Patra Foundation is providing nutrition-rich mid-day meals to more than 1.76 million children on each school day. The Foundation operates 39 kitchens across 12 states in India.
Need for meal plates
On one hand, where the Foundation is putting all its efforts towards providing nutritious meals regularly, on the other hand, it has been observed that children are not able to comfortably eat their meals due to lack of availability of meal plates.
Children often serve their meals in plastic containers, disposable plates, or small bowls. Eating meals from Needless to say, unavailability of proper meal plates acts as a barrier for children to enjoy their meals in entirety.
Thus, as a way forward, Akshaya Patra has taken the initiative to provide clean and hygienic stainless-steel meal plates to all its beneficiaries, aside from providing regular meals. But, this will incur an additional cost that is over and above the meal cost.
For this, Akshaya Patra invites you to participate in this initiative so that the actual objective of the mid-day meal programme can be attained.
