Story

Annamrita serves midday Meals in government aided as well as non-aided schools to the poorest of poor children across the nation. The work is done without any commercial motive and the benefits are available to needy students at large without any discrimination on the grounds of religion, caste, creed or gender.

The program started with 900 children in 2004 from a small room and today we have 20 state-of-the-art kitchens in; Tardeo, Mira Bhayander, Palghar, Nigdi, Wada, Aurangabad, Gurgaon, Delhi, Faridabad, Kurukshetra, Palwal, Tirupati, Nellore, Rajahmundry, Kadapa, Ranganara Gadda,  Jamshedpur, Jaipur and Kolkata. 

The recipients of the Mid Day Meal primarily consist of children from slum and tribal areas. For many the meal we provide may be the only meal they receive in the entire day. So we strive to ensure that the Mid-Day Meal is healthy, nutritious and packed with all the important fibres, vitamins and nutrients required for the healthy growth of the child. Our meals are customised as per the regional or local taste and provisions by the government.

Seeing the track record of good work being done by Annamrita, the MCGM approached ISKCON Food Relief Foundation to start providing healthy meals in Municipal hospitals in 2016, the pilot project being conducted at Dr. R. N. Cooper Municipal General Hospital where we are serving over 600 indoor patients. 

Social Impact of Annamrita
•By providing one wholesome nutritious meal during the school lunch hours, the project is addressing the issue of class-room hunger and malnutrition. As a result, there is a significant improvement in school enrolment, attendance and performance of the children 
•Healthy meals ensure better attention span, academic progress and reduced dropout rates thereby supporting Education for underprivileged children 
•Sharing the financial responsibility of the underprivileged section. In most of the cases, the families of such children are below the poverty line, so one full meal is a great incentive for the parents to send the children to school as it is one less mouth for them to feed during the day. 
•This program has reaped particular benefits in the area of Girl Child Education as well as providing employment opportunities to women from the surrounding areas. 
•Serving a common meal to all has been instrumental in helping children unite and rise above cultural and caste differences. 
•The food provided at hospitals will ensure the patients get the nutrient value required to strengthen their immune system and make a speedy recovery.
