Let no child go to school hungry ever!
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But not all children are fortunate to eat a healthy and nutritious breakfast. At Annapoorna, we strive to meet this nutrition gap. Hot and healthy breakfast is served to all children in our partner schools and the results have been very encouraging.
Sometimes we tend to forget the far-reaching impact of the breakfast programme on those that aren’t as actively involved in it. Be it a layman or a corporate or the city’s elite, good work always finds appreciation, no matter what.
Being a volunteer at Annapoorna has been a very humbling as well as inspiring experience for me. Working at the grassroots level of our society, knowing that what we do is making a difference to many lives is a very gratifying feeling.
