On December 8, 2020, we welcomed the Assistant Administrative Officer (AAO) from Principal Accountant General Office, Hyderabad, Mr S.V.V.S Prasad to our newest kitchen in Gambhiram, Andhra Pradesh.
Mr Prasad toured the kitchen facility, to get a first-hand look at the operations inside the mega-kitchen capable of cooking 30,000 meals a day. The Gambhiram facility serves midday meals to 179 schools in the area, serving over 14,000 beneficiaries every school day. During the lockdown, the kitchen facility was mobilized for Akshaya Patra’s COVID-19 Relief Efforts, which included cooked meals and dry ration kit distribution to vulnerable families.
On completion of the tour and a detailed review of the operations, Shri Prasad Ji graciously took a moment to share a few words of encouragement, “I personally found the activities taken up i.e. distribution of dry rations and Happiness Kits by the organization during the COIVD-19 pandemic are very helpful to school going children. Further, the organization is maintaining kitchen with utmost care following safety norms and providing nutritious food to children.” He signs off, “I wish the staff of the organization for their contribution in this great service to the needy children. I hope the organization will cover more districts in A.P in the coming years. All the best Akshaya Patra Foundation.”
We thank Shri Prasad Ji for his kind wishes and words of encouragement.
Thanks to the support of our generous donors and well-wishers, Akshaya Patra continues serving its beneficiary children through the Happiness Kits Initiative and supporting vulnerable families through COVID-19 Relief Efforts.
The service continues…
