Unlimited food for education.....
WHEN AND HOW WE STARTED
The Akshaya Patra Foundation expanded its reach in Andhra Pradesh by starting kitchens in Visakhapatnam in October 2008. The kitchen provides mid-day meals to Government schools and Anganwadi children.
The Centralised kitchen unit at Visakhapatnam was established in October 2008. This kitchen currently feeds 21,333 Government school children and 36,360 Anganwadi children each day. There are 25 custom-made meal distribution vehicles to deliver the cooked mid-day meals to the beneficiary schools. A water harvesting pit is an eco-friendly initiative undertaken by this kitchen.
