Story
Impact

Hitesh is 10 years old. He lives with his parents in Palghar in Maharashtra. Both his parents work at a construction site. They leave early to work and do not have time to make a meal for Hitesh in the morning. An occasional cup of tea in the morning is his only source of sustenance through the day. **He does not eat breakfast or have lunch at school.**His first and only meal a day used to be when his mother got home and made him dinner. He would be too tired and weak to focus on anything by evening and would fall asleep after dinner. Hitesh’s life changed when **ISKCON Food Relief Foundation started their midday meal program in his school. They gave him a warm and nutritious meal at school for free every day.** This gave him something to look forward to as well as the nutrition he needed to survive. Hitesh is now able to focus on his studies and enjoys school. He hopes to someday become an engineer. At least one good meal is essential for a child’s well being and development. You can gift meals to poor children like Hitesh who have no other source of nutrition through the day. You can give with confidence because every program on our platform is [GIVEASSURED](https://www.giveindia.org/giveassured).


About The Program

ISKCON Food Relief Foundation (IFRF) believes in providing children with the right nutrition to support their education through their "Annamrita" program.

Every child in this country can get an education if each person sponsors one wholesome meal for one child. The Midday Meal Scheme is being implemented by IFRF under the name of "Annamrita" meaning "food that is as pure as nectar." The khichdi is prepared in centralized and hi-tech kitchens with the highest standards of hygiene and quality ingredients. Close to 12,00,000 meals are provided every day across 8 states. Donate to this program and you will support two children in Maharashtra get access to a meal for a year. This may be the only good meal they eat in a day.


About The NGO

Annamrita is the strategic Mid Day Meal Programme by the government of India and run by IKSCON Food Relief Foundation, which aims to liberate the unprivileged children from malnourishment and illiteracy. Their program is based on the belief that 'you are what you eat'. They provide a nutritious meal to the children in school to attract them to school, thus, serving two purposes of curbing illiteracy and malnourishment. One nutritious meal a day brings thousands of children to school. Their goal is that no child should be deprived of education due to poverty and hunger. Undernourishment is one of the major conditions hitting the children of India., thus, Annamitra has resolved to provide good quality and hygienic food straight out of ISO certified kitchens. The food prepared is of high nutritional value, suitable for growing children. With healthy food and a full-stomach, they can concentrate better on their studies. Presently, Annamitra caters over 12,00,000 meals every day from 20 kitchen centers across 8 states. In 2016, ISKCON Food Relief Foundation was awarded the D.Y. Patil Annual Achievers Award by the Dr. D. Y. Patil Group, as the best organization for distributing midday meals to underprivileged children.
