We support the work of The Akshaya Patra Foundation in India. The Akshaya Patra Foundation feeds 1.76 million children, a hot, nutritious midday meal, daily.
Our goal is to feed 5 billion children by 2025.
We raise 10%-12% of the total program costs for our Indian counterpart. We share the vision that no child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger.
Our team is comprised of 10 dedicated individuals, spread across North America, devoted to improving the lives of the millions of children across India. We also have 20 volunteer-driven chapters in major cities in the US. Our Board Members and Advisory Board are accomplished leaders who contribute significant amounts of their time and expertise to further the mission of the organization.
We build relationships with individuals, international organizations, foundations and granting bodies to raise awareness and funds for the millions of children who go to bed hungry, every night.
Our Youth Ambassador program actively engages young volunteers, aged 8 to 25 years old, to bring awareness and raise funds for the program, while helping develop leadership, marketing and development skills.
The foundation is registered with the US Internal Revenue Service (Tax ID number 01-0574950) as a 501(c)3 charitable organization and has earned top honors from both Charity Navigator and Guidestar.
