Nepal Earthquake Relief Project by Akshaya Patra

The Nepal Earthquake Relief Project was primarily spearheaded to help Nepal people get freshly cooked wholesome food. The Nepal Earthquake Relief Project has been a joint initiative of Sipradian Sahayata Sanstha, Tata Trust and The Akshaya Patra Foundation. The initiative is being funded by Tata Trust and has already moved forward as the Akshaya Patra kitchen launch is underway.

Akshaya Patra Kitchen

In order to set the Akshaya Patra kitchen, installation materials are being transported to Nepal from the following regions Bengaluru, Pune, Valsad and Lucknow. Two trucks laden with heavy kitchen equipment like cauldrons along with various food products with long shelf life were on its way from Bengaluru. The truck from Pune carried a Thermax boiler whereas the truck from Valsad carried a small boiler and other needed materials. Finally the truck from Lucknow set off with vessels, crates and pallets, and galvanized iron boxes along with various other items. The Sipradian Sahayata Sanstha furthered the efforts to help Nepal people by assisting Akshaya Patra in acquiring required customs clearance for the trucks to enter Nepal.

The kitchen for the Nepal Earthquake Relief Project is being set up at Subakamana Party Palace, Suryabinayak Chowk , Bhaktapur. The expected date of the kitchen launch is 21st June 2015. This kitchen will provide freshly cooked wholesome meals to 11 locations in and around Bhaktapur namely Bhelukhel, Maheswari, Jella, Garun Kund, Kamal Binayak, Thulo Bayasee, Bayasee, Bode, Thali, Gokarneswar and Bhugmati.
