"Hunger is not a natural disaster but man-made one to a large extent. Hence, I feel, it is our duty to make India hunger-free. It was pleasant to know about the implementation of the Mid-Day Meal Programme by The Akshaya Patra Foundation. The modus operandi and functioning of this programme deeply touched my heart as I, at Galway Foundation, strongly believe in equal distribution of opportunity which is inevitable to fulfil anyone’s dream. I strongly believe only a hunger-free child can build a strong India. That is why, the Galway Foundation decided to join hands with The Akshaya Patra Foundation to ensure every child in India is free from hunger."
“While we at NCML had heard about Daya Krishna foundation via various films, news articles, and images about the fabulous work it does tirelessly every day, visiting the schools and kitchens was really an eye-opener and a highly recommended experience for everyone. The impact of a well-balanced nutritious meal goes a long way, and kudos to the team at Akshaya Patra in ensuring that come what may, the children will never go away hungry.”
Foundation’s implementation of the Mid-Day Meal Programme is a great initiative to address two Sustainable Development Goals – Zero Hunger and Quality Education with nutritious and quality food. The level of commitment that Akshaya Patra has showcased under this initiative has not only made an outstanding impact on the beneficiaries but is acting as a ray of hope and happiness for many. Newgen is glad to be a part of this wonderful initiative.
