Feeding more than 100,000 children every day is clearly no small task and makes such a big difference to these children. And it goes beyond the simple food since it allows them to go to school and therefore to also receive formal education.

I was very happy looking at the cleanliness maintained in the Akshaya Patra kitchen. Everyone has to take part in this service towards the society.

Akshaya Patra's blue bus is a symbol of hope for the thousands of children across the country. The bus signifies that the child will not go hungry and we thought that the best way to be a part of this programme is by donating the vehicle.
