AKSHAYA PATRA FOUNDATION USA
October 8, 2009

One fine day I had seen a Blue van with lots of pictures of children. I could find the name The Akshaya Patra Foundation in the van. Out of inquisitiveness I quickly jotted down the website address and checked it as soon as I came in front of the computer. After reading about the work the organization is doing for the underprivileged strata of the society I was really impressed and I called them up in the toll free number. A gentle man received the call and answered all my questions patiently. I still wanted to see in real whether they were really doing whatever they have claimed. I asked them whether I could see the operations myself and I was readily thrown an invitation by them. They asked me for a date when I could come down early in the morning at 6 am to see the centralized kitchen operations and thereafter view a presentation and then take a visit to the school to see then having the lunch. I was very delighted by this and I decided to pay them a visit. I discussed this with my friends we came on the next weekend as a group of 6 people. We became so impressed in that one day that we have enrolled ourselves as lifetime donors and volunteers. Its great to be associated with such a huge mission. At lease we are doing something for the society in a small way through Akshaya Patra.
