Working as a non-profit organisation in India The Akshaya Patra Foundation has been strategically and effectively making its expansion to benefit more and more children through the mid-day meal programme. Foundation initiated its service towards children way back in June 2000. Since then it has not left any stone unturned to maximise the potential of the mi-day meal programme. It began its service as a NGO in Bangalore in the state of Karnataka, gradually moved to other locations in the state and then further expanded to other states of the country. Akshaya Patra made its move towards Rajasthan by opening its first centralised kitchen in Jaipur in February 2004. Subsequently, it made its advent to other parts of the state as NGO in Nathdwara, Baran and very recently as NGO in Jodhpur. In total the reach of this non-profit organisation in Rajasthan is more than 135,000 children covering more than 1,800 Government schools.
As a NGO in Nathdwara, Akshaya Patra started its operations in June 2006. It has a fully equipped centralised kitchen to prepare mid-day meal to more than 25,000 children every day. It also has a fleet of customised meal delivery vehicles to retain the freshness of the cooked meal during transportation from kitchen to school. Alike other serving locations, this NGO in Nathdwara too serves local palate to the children of more than 435 Government schools. It also regularly takes feedback from beneficiary schools regarding the taste, quantity and quality of the mid-day meal served so that it remains abreast with any improvisations needed. Akshaya Patra runs three centralised kitchens in Rajasthan one each at non-profit organisation in India, Jaipur and Jodhpur. It operates the decentralised format of kitchen in Baran due to difficult terrain and connectivity to construct centralised kitchen.
Akshaya Patra aims to reach out to more children as a mid-day meal providing NGO in Nathdwara. Along with the local support, it looks forward to support from across the country and overseas too. Donation for NGO in Nathdwara is certain to aid in expanding the mid-day meal service to more number of children by including new schools in and around Nathdwara.
