From Feedr’s inception, we have been passionate about running a business with sustainability and community at its core.
As part of our strategy to ensure we are making a positive difference in everything we do, we are proud that we have been partnered with the fantastic Akshaya Patra foundation, since our business launched 3 years ago. A charity doing tremendous work for food relief across India and now in London, we want to share the fantastic initiatives they’re currently running to support vulnerable communities in light of the covid-19 pandemic.
The Akshaya Patra Foundation strives to tackle the issues of hunger, malnutrition and education, and do this by providing fresh meals to millions of school children every day. We proudly support this effort through our ‘meal for a meal’ initiative, donating a meal to a school child for every meal ordered through our platform. This has allowed us to donate hundreds of thousands of meals to vulnerable children each year.
Since covid-19 has swept across the globe in the last few weeks however, the need for food relief has grown exponentially. Akshaya Patra is stepping up to meet this unprecedented demand however, serving a staggering 20 million meals to vulnerable people across India in recent weeks. Their work does not stop there however, the foundation is also supporting vulnerable communities across London as well – serving over 55,00o meals to Londoners in need to date.
We will continue to support this fantastic initiative during this time and beyond. All orders placed through our site will be matched with a donation and we look forward to welcoming new and returning customers soon, and continue developing our partnership with this very worthy cause.
