Former President Bill Clinton visited the Akshaya Patra's in Jaipur Kitchen on July 16. The kitchen, which is part of Akshaya Patra's Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Commitment to Action,  was built in 2004 and currently serves over 106,000 students in more than 1,400 schools! 
  
President Clinton also met with students, their parents, and school administrators at schools that benefit from our school meal program. 
 
"This CGI commitment is a very important program," said President Clinton. "The lunches served are not only healthy meals for kids, they are also tools that help to get more children into the classroom."
 
Since making the Commitment to Action as part of the Clinton Global Initiative, awareness about Akshaya Patra has grown tremendously and enabled us to meet new compassionate and generous supporters of our school meal program.  

It has also empowered us to build relationships with corporations and foundations interested in making a difference in the lives of children. The Caterpillar Corporation donated over $2 million for our newest kitchen being built in Lucknow that will serve 100,000 additional children annually.  ConAgra Foods has sponsored vehicles and distribution vessels and meals for children in Gujarat.  

We know that you, and all of our dedicated supporters, are committed to taking action to improve the lives of children in India. Help us reach our next goal of feeding 5 million children by 2020!
