ISKCON Food Relief Foundation (IFRF) believes in providing children with the right nutrition to support their education. IFRF’s annamrita program is based on the belief that ‘you are what you eat’. Therefore one nutritious meal a day brings thousands of children to school. You can help every child in this country get an education, if you donate that one wholesome meal. Presently we cater over 12,00,000 meals everyday from our 20 kitchen centers across 8 states.
The Midday Meal Scheme of Govt of India is being implemented by IFRF under the name of ‘annamrita’ meaning food as pure as nectar. A majority of the population in India is still unable to get even one complete square meal for the day, only because they are stuck in the vicious circle of poverty and illiteracy. Annamrita has resolved to liberate the underprivileged from this vicious cycle by serving children with sanctified food. Imbued with a spiritual ambience in annamrita’s hi-tech kitchens, the khichdi prepared nourishes the mind, body and soul alike. The khichdi is prepared with the highest standards of hygiene and quality ingredients that meet the nutritional requirements of growing children. But most importantly, IFRF mixes a secret ingredient to the khichdi it serves – love, devotion and compassion that adds an unparallel taste of purity to the meal. ISKCON Food Relief Foundation is a not-for-profit, non-religious, non-sectarian public charitable trust formed on April 23, 2004 and registered under the Bombay Public Trusts Act, 1950.
