Feed a Child, Now is the time to act - Akshay Patra

Inspired by Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, when he saw small kids fighting with dogs for scrap of food.  he began the initiative to see that no child in india goes hungry, Akshay patra started with a mid-day meal program in bangalore, feeding 1500 schools.
Since then they have provided mid day meals in many government and government aided schools across different states in India. 
Ministry of Human resources and development of Government of india is supporting the organization since 2003. Now they feed almost 1.2 million children daily with the help of financial support from different individuals and organization. 
Their mission is to reach 5 million children by the year 2020. Its a noble cause which they are trying to achieve with the help of people like us. India is suffering from poverty since many years, Education and good nutrition are the key to eliminating poverty. 
We all live in our busy worlds, time is a big factor.we dont have time for ourselves or for our family or for anything we love. All of us just keep preaching, we want to do something good for people, or give something back to the society. 
Heres ur chance, small or big, give something to keep the mission alive .

Thanks :)
