One of the many ways to get involved with the mid-day meal programme of The Akshaya Patra Foundation is by donating meal delivery vans. It is a great aid for transporting fresh mid-day meals to children. Many corporate and individual donors have come forward to donate meal delivery vehicles to the Foundation. Recently, DHL Express donated three delivery vans to The Akshaya Patra Foundation that were flagged off at the NGO’s H.K. Hill kitchen premise on 20 August, 2015. DHL Express is one of the popular logistics company. The flag off ceremony of the mid-day meal vehicles was attended by R. S. Subramanian, SVP & Country Manager, DHL Express India, Chanchalapathi Dasa, Vice-Chairman, The Akshaya Patra Foundation and Shridhar Venkat, CEO, The Akshaya Patra Foundation.
These vehicles have been customised as per the Foundation’s standard of a honeycomb interior to prevent food spillage and insulated body to retain temperature of the freshly cooked meals. The three vehicles will be utilised to transport mid-day meals to 18 schools thereby it benefits more than 2,500 children.
