The vehicle, a part of Akshaya Patra’s Bengaluru kitchen, will help the NGO deliver 5,000 meals each day to children
In a bid to fight the global issue of child malnutrition, Gemini Edibles & Fats India (GEF India) has donated a delivery vehicle to The Akshaya Patra Foundation in Bengaluru. The collaboration will support the NGO’s mission to eliminate child malnutrition in India and help transport nutritious mid-day meals to government schools in the region.
The vehicle that will be part of Akshaya Patra’s Hare Krishna Hill kitchen in Bengaluru will help the NGO deliver 5,000 meals each day to over 1 lakh children.
In 2020-21, GEF India partnered with Akshaya Patra to provide mid-day meals by donating six delivery vehicles. Reiterating their mission of eradicating child malnutrition, in the last one year, both organisations have joined hands again with GEF India donating five more vehicles in various regions including Hare Krishna Hill and Jigani in Karnataka and Mangalagiri in Andhra Pradesh.
Sundeep Talwar, CMO, The Akshaya Patra Foundation, said, “For 21 years now, we’ve served nutritious meals to children with an aim to eradicate classroom hunger. Our missions that no child should be deprived of education due to hunger can only be achieved via such partnerships. This collaboration with GEF India will go a long way in expanding the reach of Akshaya Patra’s meals to thousands more students in Bengaluru.”
