JOIN THE HOSPITAL FEEDING INITIATIVE

Public hospitals in Mumbai cater to an average of 15-lakh patients in a month, majority belonging to socio-economically weaker section.
To meet hospitalisation and medical cost, family members of these patients either choose to go hungry or consume cheap junk food!

WE ARE RESPONDING
TO THEIR HUNGER PANGS

We provide free, nutritious meals to family members of patients from marginalised communities at public hospitals in Mumbai. Currently, we are catering to four hospitals – St. George Hospital, Cama & Albless Hospital, Gokuldas Tejpal Hospital, and BYL Nair Hospital. We are Akshaya Chaitanya, an NGO in Mumbai by HKM Charitable Foundation.

For the Hospital Feeding Initiative, we prepare food at our FSSAI compliant, state-of-the-art kitchen in Byculla, Mumbai. We follow a locally palatable cyclic menu to ensure variety in taste and ready intake of all nutrients.

HIGHLIGHTS OF OUR KITCHEN

OUR ASPIRATION

As an NGO in Mumbai, first, we strive to direct our efforts to attain the objective of eradicating hunger in a sustainable and scalable way by providing food relief to marginalised sections of the society in the city of Mumbai. Second, we aim to create a symbiotic ecosystem that will enable government, policy makers, philanthropists, corporates, individuals, donors, volunteers, and supporters to work together in a concerted manner. Third, we want to be an active contributor in the UN Sustainable Development Goal 2 – Zero Hunger and Goal 3 – Good Health and Well-being.

VISION

To make Mumbai hunger-free, in a sustainable and scalable way.

MISSION

To provide free, nutritious meals to marginalised communities across Mumbai through targeted initiatives.

INITIAL INTERVENTION

To provide free, nutritious meals to the family members of patients in all public hospitals in Mumbai.

OUR INSPIRATION

Akshaya Chaitanya is an initiative with its roots in the compassionate story of Srila Prabhupada.

One day, while looking out of a window in Mayapur, a small hamlet near Calcutta, Srila Prabhupada saw a group of children fighting with stray dogs over scraps of food. Deeply moved by this incident, he resolved to ensure that no one within a ten mile radius of his centre would go hungry. This direction to his followers inspired the genesis of various charitable feeding initiatives.

– His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada
