Support to Mid Day Meal Programme

Asian Supply Chain Solutions partners with Akshaya Patra Foundation in providing mid day meals to school children to motivate children to bring the children back to school.

Akshaya Patra reaches out to 18,02,517 children in 51 kitchens across 13 states & 1 Union territory of India, providing them with freshly cooked meal on all school days. Currently, it implements the mid-day meal programme in 16,856 schools of the country, with plans to increase that number to hundreds more.

 The impact of the mid-day meal witnessed in all the serving locations of Akshaya Patra is indicative that the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) with Akshaya Patra in implementing the programme has been successful in meeting the six objectives of the mid-day meal programme.

The work of Akshaya Patra in implementing the mid-day meal in India has been recognised by the National Steering-cum-Monitoring Committee (NSMC) for mid-day meal programme.  Also, the NP-NSPE has stated Akshaya Patra’s Centralised Kitchen as a model infrastructure in their guidelines for large scale production of mid-day meals.

Below is an overview of the impact of the Akshaya Patra mid-day meal programme for school children:

  • Increased enrolment – The mid-day meal scheme has become a great incentive for children to come to school. As more often than not, the mid-day meal is the child’s only meal for the day, parents prefer to send their children to school.
  • Increased attendance – Children look forward to coming to school every day due to the delicious menu. In addition, regional delicacies are also a big draw for them to attend school.
  • Increased concentration – The nutritious and healthy mid-day meal increases the child’s concentration in class and helps them perform better.
  • Improved socialisation – The intermingling and eating together habit has increased the unity among children of various religions and castes. It has helped in removing divisional hierarchy in terms of social standing and has fostered a sense of equality among them.
  • Addressed malnutrition –  The programme is striving to meet the nutritional requirements of children such as energy, carbohydrates, proteins and fat through its mid-day meal for school children.
  • Empowered women – Women have been employed in different capacities in operations and other areas as cooks, helpers etc., with the advent of the mid-day meal scheme. This vocational opportunity has given a boost to their self-esteem and improved their social standing.
