In line with the commitment of our founder to donate 1 million meals, we are happy to partner with ‘Akshay Patra Foundation’ a not for profit organization working on the mid-day meal program for children since 2000. Akshaya Patra’s venture in Delhi, the heart of the India, has been very successful. The first Gole Market kitchen was inaugurated in October 2019, the second kitchen in Mohan Cooperative and two more kitchens at Jahangirpuri and Badli in January 2020.

The Centralised kitchen adheres to international standards of food safety and hygiene & is ISO 22000:2005 certified & serves to around 170 Schools in Delhi.
