As a token of gratitude and appreciation for the Mid-day meal staff who relentlessly serve the school-going children in government schools every single day, Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust came forward to provide sarees to nearly 60,000 cooks across the country and about 100 white dresses for male cooks. In addition, 25,00,000 chikki bars and pocket calendars were provided to each child, in the month of August 2023. The cooks are one of the main contributors to making the morning nutrition program successful. It is they, who diligently prepare the nutritious SaiSure health drink, every single day so that the children are provided with morning nutrition. Even during the COVID pandemic, due to the closure of schools, the cooks were pushed into inactivity. However, they were not forgotten. The Trust had then provided them with dry ration kits to ensure their welfare in grim times.
