  • Akshaya Patra Serves Food to the Flood-Affected People of Dharwad

    Published on August 18, 2019

    Mumbai: In the aftermath of heavy rains and resultant floods in Dharwad, Karnataka, The Akshaya Patra Foundation has endeavoured to provide essential food relief to the distraught citizens of the district at the administration’s request. The Foundation’s Hubballi kitchen is taking into account the gravity of the situation and extending support to the administration’s relief operation by providing breakfast, lunch and dinner to those affected. A team of 20 volunteers from AIKYA, the Foundation’s youth volunteering wing, has been mobilised to distribute safe and hygienic food to people in the flood-affected parts of the district.

    In the last six days, Akshaya Patra has already served over 2,50,000 freshly cooked meals to more than 20,000 people in the district. For breakfast, people are being provided freshly cooked upma and Kesari bath, while rice, sambar and pickle were served for lunch and dinner. The food is being prepared at the Foundation’s centralised kitchen in Hubballi and transported to the affected areas through Akshaya Patra delivery vehicles. Akshaya Patra will continue to work with the local administration and aid their flood relief efforts in Dharwad until the situation improves.


    Over the years, Akshaya Patra has actively undertaken relief feeding in different parts of the country, including Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala. It is the organisation’s firm belief that food is a vital necessity during such crises. The Foundation strives to utilize the capacity of its kitchens across the country to assist the Government with disaster relief work.
