AKSHAYA PATRA FOUNDATION USA
October 12, 2009

One day i got a mail mail from my colleague, a small brief about Akshaya Patra. It sounded intresting hence i logged on to their website for more info, I was impressed. Same day i called up the AKP office and i said i wanna meet someone in person to discuss more. So next day a lady from AKP visited me and explained me more about AKP. She also invited me to see the kitchen. So i visited the AKP kitchen next day along with some of my friends. I was really flat after seeing their Centralized kitchen. It was Mind blowing. Cooking meals for 1 lakh children in less than 5 hours time. Then we had been taken to a near by primary school. The children gave us a warm welcome smile. We were speaking to the children about their studies and AKP food. I hear some children saying "We come to school only b'cos of AKP food". The bell rings for Lunch. Children run get their plates and form a line. We served the food and it was an awesome experience. We also got an opportunity to taste the food along with the children. After tasting the food i felt that children are really lucky to eat such a hot nutritious meal tasty wholesome meal. Hats off to AKP. Then when discussing with the teachers we came to know that for most of the children this is the only meal they eat in a day. Almost in tears. That is when i decided that i will do my best to support AKP as much as possible. I take this opportunity to thank AKP and their staffs for doing such a fabulous work. Keep Rocking and we will very soon see a developed India by educating children.
