Akshaya Patra’s Ahmedabad kitchen was chosen to be the topic in a recent NGO blog. The NGO blog captured a detailed description of the Akshaya Patra’s kitchen facility in Ahmedabad. The Akshaya Patra Foundation operates as a mid-day meal NGO in Gujarat and nine other states of India. As a NGO in Gujarat Akshaya Patra operates in Surat, Vadodara and Ahmedabad.

Here is a brief of the NGO blog on Akshaya Patra’s Ahmedabad kitchen:
Even before the sun rose, the Akshaya Patra’s kitchen at Ahmedabad bustles with pre-production and production activities for the day’s mid-day meal. This kitchen of Akshaya Patra is one of the largest kitchen facilities in India which is dedicated to the mid-day meal programme. It has a capacity to prepare two lakhs meals in a span of five hours. The roti making machine can roll out 60,000 rotis in an hour. The introduction of Akshaya Patra to Gujarat came about after Narendra Modi’s visit to the Foundation’s Bangalore kitchen facility in 2007. The Akshaya Patra’s kitchen at Ahemdabad is innovatively mechanised and employs mechanisms like gravity flow for its production processes. Jagranjan Mishra, General Manager, Operations at Akshaya Patra’s Ahmedabad kitchen added that there has been an overwhelming support in the form of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) from organisations like ONGC, GSPC, GACL and GIPC along with philanthropic local donors in construction of the kitchens.
