An NGO based in Bengaluru famous with the name “Akshaya Patra” has been awarded with the BBC World Service Global Champion Award.

Name the organization which has been awarded the BBC World Service Global Champion Award.

The award has been presented to Akshaya Patra, during an award ceremony at the ‘BBC Food and Farming Awards' organized at Bristol in London. The BBC World Service Global Champion Award recognizes the contribution made by a project or a person who is taking firm steps towards changing the way the world produces, processes, consumes or think about food for the betterment of masses.

The Non-Government Organization, Akshaya Patra has selected a panel of International Judges while the nominations were sent in by the World Service audiences present around the world. The other nominations along with Akshaya Patra were UK Charity, WRAP, and Food 4 Education.

Akshaya Patra the non-profit organization is one of the world’s largest project which serves school meals based in India. The CEO of Akshaya Patra, ‘Shridhar Venkat’ received the award with great honor and feel proud to achieve the place in society and support the future of India to be bright and educated. He started his charity work of supporting children’s to provide at least a single time meal to children and get basic education as well about 20 years ago.

Initially, the Akshaya Patra started its work by providing only 1500 free school lunches on a daily basis. However, now the reach of the Akshaya Patra increases to feeding 1.75 Million Children’s all over India, especially with the hot and freshly prepared food delivery on time.

It has been the 3rd edition of BBC World Service Global Food Championship Award. In the year 2018, the chef ‘Jose Andres’ won the award for providing the aid of 3.4 Million meals for the people of Puerto Rico during the aftermath of Hurricane Maria.
