Akshaya Patra Foundation joined the acceleration program in 2012, having won an Innovation Award from Marico Innovation Foundation. Having setup large scale centralized kitchens, each with a capacity to cook over 1 lakh meals per day, Akshaya Patra was reaching over 1.3 million children under the Mid Day Meal program, when we began working with the team. However, the issue of nutritious mid day meals covers over 110 million children in India - and through the acceleration program we agreed to try and find a model that could help TAPF reach more children, faster, more efficiently and also in deep rural regions of India. The acceleration process and its deep dive, insights led methodology led to the design of a modular hub-spoke kitchen system with smaller satellite kitchens within communities, serviced by a central procurement and processing hub. Through this innovative development Akshaya Patra aims to go deeper into rural catchments and those areas where large central kitchens are a logistical challenge. The Hub-spoke kitchen approach is expected to significantly enhancing APF’s reach across schools in India. A prototype of the model will be developed in Bangalore and once established will be scaled further across the Akshaya Patra operations, helping the team reach its goal of 5 million children faster - and potentially aim to reach 10 million children by 2020.
