Midday Meal is a strategic program of the Government of India, and is being implemented by ISKCON Food Relief Foundation (IFRF) under the brand name - “annamrita” in select schools across the country. The aim of this project is to liberate children from the vicious cycle of Malnourishment and Illiteracy.
It is a not-for-profit, non-religious, non-sectarian public charitable trust formed on April 23, 2004 and registered under the Bombay Public Trusts Act, 1950.
Annamrita believes in providing children with the right nutrition to support their education. Our program is based on the belief that ‘you are what you eat’. Therefore one nutritious meal prepared with compassion and love, the way a mother would prepare a meal for her child, brings thousands of children to school daily.
Annamrita serves 1.2 million meals every single day, through its 20 kitchens across India. We have a presence in 7 states namely - Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Jharkhand, Maharashtra, Rajasthan and West Bengal.
Our aim is to Promote Education One Meal at a Time by providing nutritious, wholesome, hygienic meals prepared in hi-tech kitchens which not only nourish the body but also nurture the soul.
