These kitchens are equipped with dal cauldrons

The Akshaya Patra Foundation is one of the pioneer NGOs implementing the Mid-Day Meal Programme in India. Since the last 20 years, the Foundation has worked relentlessly to cook and serve meals to school children coming from challenging backgrounds. It supports the Government’s initiative of the Mid-Day Meal Scheme to tackle two issues: hunger and education. Mid-day meals act as an incentive for parents hailing from economically challenged backgrounds to send their children to school with the hope that they will be able to at least eat one proper meal a day.VISION: No child in India shall be deprived of China Fresh Food Tray education because of hunger.There are millions of children who need the right amount of nutrition for better overall development.

These kitchens are equipped with dal cauldrons with 500 litres capacity, sambar/dal cauldrons with a capacity of 1200 litres, rice chutes, trolleys, knives, and other similar equipment made out of 304 food-grade stainless steel.Apart from the above, the Akshaya Patra kitchens use vegetable cutting machines, potato peeler machines, coconut grating machines, etc. In Northern India, top high-end automated machines are used for making rotis. With the help of roti making machine and dough kneader, around 200,000 rotis can be made using 6000 kilograms of wheat flour. For cooking in such a large scale, it is imperative to plan and act in a structured manner. Which is why the Foundation follows certain standard operating procedures. Kaizen, Continuous Improvement Projects and Six Sigma methodologies are an essential part of the Akshaya Patra’s operations. Apart from these methodologies, various green initiatives are adopted as a part of regular operations.
This includes, solar and biogas plants, eco-friendly technologies like ReFlex Reverse Osmosis System, effluent treatment plants and Reed bed plants in various kitchens across the nation.Based on this, raw materials are identified, stored and retrieved systematically. Cyclical menu-based cooking approachEvery location follows a pre-defined cyclical menu. This also keeps a tab on wastage-at-source. Apart from which, every kitchen cooks locally palatable which helps in avoiding wastage at schools Meal packing and deliveryThe vessels in which the meals are packed is first sterilised in steam. Food is then packed into stainless steel 304-grade-vessels which are loaded into customised vehicles that transport these meals. Vehicles used at Akshaya Patra have a puffed body to reduced loss of temperature of meals and honeycomb structure to hold the containers in place.
