Inspiration: The Story of Hope

Srila Prabhupada, the Founder-Acharya of ISKCON, once witnessed the
disturbing sight of children fighting with dogs for scraps of food. Deeply
touched by what he saw, he asked his followers to work towards a world
where no one would go hungry, especially children. With this story of
compassion as the inspiration, Akshaya Patra started our school lunch program in the year 2000 with the feeding of 1,500 children in five schools in Bengaluru, India.
