Akshay’s 7th Birthday

In Sanskrit, Akshaya means “inexhaustible energy”, and Patra means “vessel” — Akshaya Patra literally means, a never ending vessel of food.

Akshaya Patra is the world’s largest NGO-run mid-day meal program.  AP serves a wholesome lunch to over 1.76 million children in 15,024 schools across 12 states in India, each day — over 550 million hot lunches annually!  Each meal costs just 20 cents — $20 feeds a student for an entire year.

These are the poorest children in India.  This simple hot lunch has a huge ripple effect — children’s school attendance, energy, confidence, and performance, all increase.

Akshaya Patra is a cause that is near & dear to our family’s heart — it’s also Akshay’s namesake! Thank you for taking the time to learn & support!
