Food for Education programme

Ratna Nidhi Charitable trust’s Food for Education program distributes Free  Nutritious Food prepared at our kitchens on a daily basis, to 4500 poor children daily if they attend any formal or non-formal educational class. It thus combines food with education-we now have a child who is educated and well fed also. The programme has been very effective in arresting the drop-out rate in schools.

 From 1998 till now we have distributed over 2,24,88,537 meals

Ratna Nidhi’s food has been treated by the beneficiaries as “Homely Balanced and Tasty”. Not for profit, the food has a flavor of compassion, and tender loving care.

Today Food is sent to more than 4500 Children daily to the 40 to 50 Centers all over Mumbai and Suburbs. The Mid Day Meal is cooked at the KhetwadiFoodCenter by the special team of Rajasthani cooks under our direct supervision.

 The food partners are identified carefully and after the detailed need evaluation. These are generally Non-aided vernacular schools who do not qualify for the Govt. Mid-Day-Meal, Pre-schools in Urban Areas, Night schools who do not receive any of the welfare benefits and Street Children NGO’s who provide shelter.

 The headmaster Mr. S.B.Shirke, Dyansadhana Vidhyalay acknowledges the Food for Education program:

" I express my profound gratitude for your kind help to our school children. Our school is situated near the dumping ground of Deonar. Parents are very poor. So they are unable to provide nutritional food to their children. Last year your Trust and Dharam Bharati Mission had provided mid day meal for all our school students. This mid day meal had helped them maintain their physical fitness. Attendance has also increased. This shows us good results. On behalf of our school trust, school, children, staff, parents I thank you for the help provided and love and affection shown towards our students.

 

 S. Ramchandran Iyer, Managing Trustee – Shri Sai Trust

Our sincere Thanks to your continuous support. Because of you we have been feeding 100’s of underprivileged children since last 8 years.
