Akshaya Patra Kitchen started in Assam

The eighth state in India under Akshaya Patra’s light is Assam. We recently had a great Akshaya Patra inauguration at Guwahati, Assam.

It was a disused industrial shed, located about 1 km from the banks of the mighty river Brahmaputra which is now turned out to be the hygienic, technology-intensive Akshaya Patra kitchen. It was all because of the sincere efforts of Shri Janardhan Dasa,Akshaya Patra location Head, Assam, that the conversion took place in a record time of three months.

The Akshaya Patra kitchen has a capacity to cook for about 50,000 children.

The Governor of Assam, Shri Janaki Ballav Pattanaik graced the august occasion along with Shri Gautam Bora, Minister of Education and Dr. Himanta Biswa Sarma, Minister for Health, Family Welfare was also present at the august occasion. The Governor of Assam appreciated Akshaya Patra in his address, “…the best way to provide good, healthy & nourishing meals has been demonstrated by Akshaya Patra” the Governor and the Ministers sat with the school children and shared meals.

Shri Abhay Jain, Shri Ravindra Chamari and Shri Janardhan Dasa representing Akshaya Patra were also present.

Join hands with us to reach out to more and more children across all states in India.
