Let no child go to school hungry ever! 

Food from Our Hands to Theirs

Nourishing the next generation to become healthy & responsible citizens of the world.

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.

The growth of the children starts with breakfast. There are thousands and thousands of children all around the world, who go to the school with just a glass of water as their breakfast. What will go inside their heads when their stomachs are having nothing inside them?
Sri Sathya Sai Baba


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.

Volunteering has changed my life for the better! This work has even helped my family bond better. My children now look forward to participate in the breakfast programme on weekends, and are happier and full of gratitude.

This work has given me a fantastic opportunity to make a meaningful difference to the lives of these children. The shy but friendly smiles and little hands delicately eating the meal has made the entire experience completely joyful and one that I look forward to every week.

The Growth Story of Annapoorna

When individuals with a passion to make a difference join hands, nothing is really impossible. The growth story of Annapoorna is a testimony to what we can all achieve together, when we put our hearts and minds to it. In July 2012, a handful of us came together and started the breakfast programme. It was a humble beginning. We started serving breakfast at a school in Doddabele, near Bangalore, to about 50 children every morning. Little did we know that through such a simple act of kindness, we would be heralding the onset of a nutrition movement that would spread throughout the country and across the globe. Inspired by the work, soon more hands volunteered, more schools were adopted and as a result thousands of children now attend school on a full stomach! Read more
