NSIL has partnered with Annapoorna Trust in supporting the Morning Nutrition program for 500 children in 4 government schools for the entire academic year of 2023-24 in Gauribidanur taluk of Chikkaballapur district in Karnataka.

The collaboration further expanded to serve nearly 1,57,000 government school-going children in Raichur, Manvi, and Lingasur taluks of Raichur district. They are provided with SaiSure Millet (Ragi) Multi Nutrient Health Mix with government-sponsored milk on alternate days of the week.

There were nearly 250 children in the GHPS School, Station Bazaar Road, out of which 50 come from a government-run hostel specifically meant for migrants.

At the event, Mr. Ravi Shukla of NSIL, reminiscing his days as a student at a government school in Uttar Pradesh, he spoke to the gathering about how government school children are perceived as equal and are in no way any less compared to other school children in the recent times. He expressed his gratitude to Annapoorna Trust for providing a wonder product like SaiSure to needy children.


Mr. Geetesh Gupta of NSIL mentioned Raichur being an aspirational district, and combatting malnutrition in children here, is the need of the hour. He urged the children to consume the precious Multi Nutrient product, SaiSure, wholeheartedly without wasting. Also, told them not to hesitate to ask for a second serving. He conveyed his happiness towards Annapoorna Trust for having come forward to serve in these remote aspirational districts.


H M Srinivas, Headmaster at Station Bazaar School shared his vote of thanks and assured support from teachers for this noble work. He expressed his gratitude to NSIL and Annapoorna Trust. The school staff were touched by this noble gesture.

Annapoorna Trust advocates the 3S principle – coming together of sarkara (Government), samaja (Society and individuals at large), and sanstha (Good institutions) for a noble cause. Support from corporates like NSIL, school teachers and staff, have made this program indeed very impactful.
