Process Excellence Specialist – The Akshaya Patra Foundation

The Akshaya Patra Foundation

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is an independent charitable trust registered under the Indian Trusts Act 1882 (Reg. No. 154). We endeavour to implement the Government of India’s PM POSHAN Initiative (formerly the Mid-Day Meal Scheme) to solve at scale the overarching societal issues of classroom hunger and malnutrition in the country.

It is our firm belief that investing in child nutrition and education is one of the most effective entry points for human development. Driven by this belief, we strive to provide children with a hot, nutritious and tasty mid-day meal every school day as an incentive to come to school. Thus, the vision – ‘No child in India shall be deprived of education because of hunger.’

Since the year 2000, we have endeavoured to reach out to children with wholesome mid-day meals every school day by leveraging technology and effectively harnessing the potential of the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model. By establishing an extensive network of kitchens and partnering with the Government of India, state governments, UT administrations, corporate houses and philanthropists, we have created a system to address a social cause on a massive scale. Our efforts are in direct alignment with two critical Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): SDG 2 – Zero Hunger and SDG 4 – Quality Education.

Currently, we serve over 2.2 million children studying in 23,110 government schools and Anganwadi centres across 72 locations in 16 states and 2 union territories of India.

Hunger should never impede education. Children should not have to choose between food and education; they should have access to both. Driven by this belief, The Akshaya Patra Foundation implements the PM POSHAN initiative to support children’s nutrition and education. The objective of the Mid-Day Meal Scheme (now rechristened PM POSHAN) was to provide nutritious mid-day meals to school-going children. However, in the initial stages, one of the biggest challenges was implementing the programme at such a vast scale.

The National Programme of Nutritional Support to Primary Education (NP- NSPE) 2006 Guidelines offered an action plan, stating that the Government could mobilise community support and promote public-private partnerships for executing the initiative. As per these guidelines, the Government of India started partnering with not-for-profit organisations, such as Akshaya Patra, to implement the programme and provide mid-day meals to children in schools.

‘The recognition of the role of voluntary agencies in partnering with Government initiatives by the Centre may have had some influence in the initiatives taken by the Government of Karnataka to bring several NGOs into major government-sponsored programmes.’ – The Karnataka Human Development Report 2005 The Government of Karnataka was the first state government to involve NGOs in providing mid-day meals to school children in India.

Additionally, the report states that this involvement of the NGOs in multilateral/bilateral programmes raised the level of co-operation. Going beyond the ambit of implementation, NGOs found a place in designing and managing programmes together with the government at all levels.

The decision to involve NGOs in implementing the school feeding programme helped the Government of Karnataka add to the effectiveness and efficiency of the endeavour. The successful public-private partnership to feed children in government and government-aided schools served as a precedent, opening up an opportunity for the Government of India to successfully leverage the skills and resources of the private sector.

PM POSHAN helped ensure that every child has access to nutritious food and proper education. It is one of the largest school lunch programmes in the world, offering a lasting impact to more than 11.80 Crore children in 11.20 lakh schools (as per 2021-22 data) across the country.
