Mumbai: “This” Byculla Kitchen Turns Messiah For School Kids, Patient’s Families

An NGO in Mumbai, named Akshaya Chaitanya has launched its kitchen in Byculla. The purpose is to serve daily nutritious breakfast to over 6,500 school children in Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) schools.

It even goes a step further by looking to offer 1,800 meals to families of patients in the many government hospitals in the city.

On Friday, March 4, the kitchen was inaugurated by Mumbai suburban guardian minister, Aaditya Thackeray. He did so along with Mumbai Mayor Kishori Pednekar and Prabhu Chanchalapathi Dasa.

Thackeray took to Twitter saying, “I have been really keen on bringing Akshayapatra and Akshaya Chaitanya’s spiritual work of serving nutritious hot meals to school children in our city and State.”

According to the authorities, they are looking to augment the said service by bringing under its wing all schools by providing them with nutritious breakfast.

On the other hand, Thackeray also brought to light that women's self-help groups will cook and serve lunch. This centralized community kitchen will ensure that students have access to healthy meals.

The NGO also hopes that the initiative for the underprivileged in Mumbai has the purpose of eradicating hunger and inspiring education and enhanced health.
