The Akshaya Patra Foundation USA (Akshaya Patra), one of the largest school lunch providers in the world, is pleased to announce that Bearbottom Clothing is pledging $50,000 to The Foundation’s flagship Mid-Day Meal program to offer hot, nutritious lunches to 2,500 children in government and government-aided schools in Bangalore.
This contribution will address malnutrition among the most underserved children in India. By providing at least one nutritious meal per school day, the program seeks to increase enrollment & attendance rates, enhance energy levels, reduce attrition rates and improve socialization among castes.
“I am so grateful to Bearbottom for their generosity as we kickstart our Midday Meal program - a program that reaches millions of hungry children, every day, across schools all over India.” Navin Goel, Chief Executive Officer of Akshaya Patra, stated. “Their continuing support reinforces the fact that we have a shared goal of ensuring that no child will ever have to choose between a meal and obtaining an education.”
