About The Akshaya Patra Foundation

Registered charity number: 1117756

The Akshaya Patra Foundation tackles the issues of hunger, malnutrition and education in India and the UK.

Millions of people across the globe suffer from food insecurity. Giving people access to healthy and nutritious food alleviates financial pressure and enables individuals to focus and invest in their future, which in turn allows them to exit the poverty cycle.

This hard-working charity provides freshly cooked, nourishing meals through its Food For Education Programme in India and Beat the Hunger Program in the UK.

Your old car could help Akshaya Patra not only fight against hunger but also tackle poverty at the most fundamental level. This charity has found that providing a child with the security that comes with a guaranteed meal every day gives both them and their family some respite from the strain of deprivation. Giving children the chance to think beyond “Will I get food today?” means they can concentrate on developing themselves rather than becoming stuck in a life resigned to insecurity and manual labour.

In India, Akshaya Patra serves over 1.7 million children a freshly cooked, hot lunch, every day, in nearly 14,000 schools across the country. Through the charity’s partnership with the Indian government and the generosity of its supporters, the charity uses state-of-the-art kitchens to serve hot and nutritious school meals for just 5p a child. Its ‘Food for Education’ programme aims to serve 5 million children daily by 2020 and your old car donation could help achieve this goal.

I sincerely thank Akshaya Patra for the tasty meal that came every day without fail … I can imagine how much more difficult it would have been for me otherwise.

In the UK, Akshaya Patra has identified extreme food poverty and has brought its operations here to serve nutritionally balanced, vegetarian, freshly cooked meals to holiday clubs, schools, homeless people and seniors. Using the charity’s experience and innovative processes feeding large numbers, it is well equipped to feed free meals to those in need. Your old car donation could help see the ‘Beat the Hunger Program’ achieve the charity’s goal to serve 25,000 meals every day in the UK by 2020.

Wherever your old car donation is used it could fuel Akshaya Patra’s incredible work and help transform many lives.
