FRIENDS OF THE EARTH
The first images of Earth from space inspired a movement of people who wanted to protect the only planet we have to call home. It looked beautiful yet vulnerable.
We believe freedom is worth the fight.We believe justice is non-negotiable.We refuse to abandon the least, the last and the lost.We challenge apathy with action.We choose to greet cynicism with hope.We are purposeful, passionate and pioneering.
The Akshaya Patra Foundation strives to tackle the issues of hunger, malnutrition and education. We do this by providing freshly cooked, nourishing meals through our Food For Education Programme in India and Beat the Hunger Program in the UK.
We serve over 1.76 million children a freshly cooked, hot lunch every day in nearly 15,024 schools in India across the country. Through our state-of- the-art kitchens, our partnership with the Government of India and the generosity of our supporters, we can serve a hot and nutritious school meal to a child for just 5p.
