How many mid-day meals can Rs. 750 afford? The Akshaya Patra Foundation recently released a video that captured the opinion of people across all sections to know what Rs. 750 can buy. Interestingly, it was discovered that a lot of things can be bought with Rs. 750. But at the same time Akshaya Patra’s latest video also brought to fore that this amount in today’s time has become quite trivial. Growing inflation and rising income levels has made this amount more disposable than ever.
But there is a different story altogether when it comes to Akshaya Patra. This mid-day meal implementing NGO provides free school lunch for one child for one whole year with this Rs. 750. Yes, this is what Akshaya Patra does. So when you contribute Rs. 750 either as an offline or online donation to NGO, you are actually providing one nutritious meal per day for one child for one whole academic year. Rs. 750 is a step towards countering classroom hunger, malnutrition and illiteracy thereby paving way for a healthy, literate and hopeful nation.
