Adani Wilmar in association with the Akshaya Patra Foundation provided meals to over 3.60 lakh, underprivileged schoolchildren, in Ahmedabad, Surat, and Vadodara.
Adani Wilmer Ltd. CEO and MD Angashu Mallik said, “We at Adani Wilmar are delighted to celebrate the 60th birthday of Gautam Adani by feeding around 60,000 children daily over six days. At the same time, we are also happy to be associated with the Akshay Patra Foundation, which helped us carry out this noble work of delivering food to the underprivileged kids at various municipal schools in Ahmedabad, Surat, and Vadodara. What made the occasion even more special was the active engagement of our employees.”
Several employees of the Adani Wilmar Ltd served food to these children and became a part of the joyous celebrations. The meal was distributed to children from over 215 municipal schools across Ahmedabad, Vadodara, and Surat. As part of their meals, the children were served khichdi/pulav, rotli/thepla, sukhadi/ churma and snacks like chana chaat/masala sing. The meals for each venue were planned and arranged by Akshaya Patra Foundation.
Jaganmohan Krishna Dasa, president, of Akshaya Patra Foundation, Gujarat, said, “Our mission is to feed as many underprivileged children as we can. And this can only be achieved through partnerships like the one we have with Adani Wilmar Ltd. Collaborations like these, will certainly help us in the longer run. We are extremely thankful to Gautam Adaniji for recognising our beneficiaries on such a jubilant occasion and providing them with a gift of nutritious meals.”
With close 360,000 children being fed nutritious food, the company couldn’t have asked for a better way to celebrate the 60th birthday of their trendsetter pioneer.
