Challenge

Despite India's 50% increase in GDP since 1991,more than one third of the world's malnourished children live in India. Among these, half of the children under three years old are underweight .One of the major causes for malnutrition in India is economic inequality. Due to the low social status of some population groups, their diet often lacks in both quality and quantity. Deficiencies in nutrition inflict long-term damage to both individual and society.

Solution

Our vision is to serve nutritious and sanctified high quality food to the underprivileged children in India. In line with the objectives of the Mid Day Meal project our Goal is to increase enrollment in schools, reduce malnutrition and ensure no child is deprived of an Education due to Poverty and Hunger. Our aim is to Promote Education One Meal at a Time by providing nutritious, wholesome, hygienic meals prepared in hi-tech kitchens which not only nourish the body but also nurture the soul.

Long-Term Impact

Of the 16 crore under nourished children half of them attend anganwadis/ balwadis where the meals served to them do not meet the set nutritional and hygiene requirements for the children. We would soon like to expand our project to cover 1.5 million meals by 2020 daily.
