Access to right food provides for exploring the world of opportunities.
Hence, serving food is not an end, but a means to an end.

As an NGO in Mumbai, Akshaya Chaitanya is our attempt to make food accessible to the needy across Mumbai by serving them hot, nutritious, locally palatable meals, prepared at our very own state-of-the-art FSSAI compliant kitchen. And by doing so, we want to enable people to explore the unlimited opportunities around them, an aspect that gets muted when stomach screams for food.

Empty stomachs don’t heal. They only growl.

Meet Our Beneficiary

Saraswati Brijesh Vishwakarma, a resident of Nalasopara, Mumbai shares the story behind her comforting smile.
“Apart from treatment, we have to spend on medicine, food, and travel too. Each day, we spend around ₹150 for breakfast and dinner. No matter what challenges come by during the day, the free food I receive at lunch time takes away all my stress. At least, this is one time during the day when I can relax and have a homely meal without having to think how much it would cost. And every bite of this meal makes me feel happy and cared for.”
We want to introduce you to Vijaykumar Thakur, a Delivery Man residing in Kalbadevi, Mumbai.
A delivery man braves the hot sun, gets drenched in merciless rain, and manoeuvres his way through chaotic traffic, just so that we receive our packages at our desired address. Yet, we don’t have a moment of compassion for them. And if he happens to meet with an accident, neither he has dispensable money for treatment nor finds anyone offering help! In addition, loses his regular income too.

You have a chance today to change someone’s future, just by providing food. Don’t let it go.

Food is a basic need for survival. Without it, we can neither nourish our physical body nor nurture our mental capability. If you have access to food thrice a day, count that as a blessing! And step forward to ensure food security to fellow Mumbaikars who aren’t as fortunate as you. Your contribution towards their food will end their ponder on “when will my days of hunger end” and enable them to work towards breaking free from the vicious cycle of poverty-hunger-unemployment.


Have a special day of charity in your calendar.

Year-on-year the reasons to celebrate just keeps increasing.

Why not share these joys with those who are ‘unknown,

yet known’ to us!

The Inspiration Behind Our Existence

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
