About the organization

Akshaya Chaitanya is a not-for-profit initiative of HKM charitable foundation to enable the underprivileged, admitted in public hospitals in Mumbai, to recoup from an illness in the family. These families rush to public hospitals for affordable treatment as >80% do not have any kind of medical insurance. To add to their woes, the bread-winner loses the livelihood being bed-ridden or taking care of the loved one. 


It started with feeding vulnerable family members of patients at Indo American Cancer Hospital, Hyderabad in Nov 2011 and requests from several government and trust run hospitals started pouring in to expand the program. They instituted and registered a trust, HKM Charitable foundation, in May 2013 to expand the program to serve 3500+ daily in 17 public hospitals. They expanded to reach to every underprivileged section in Hyderabad. And, it took them 8 years to reach a scale to feed 50K meals every day to realize their mission for Hyderabad in collaboration with several corporate partners and local municipal authorities. They have been in service for over 9 years and have served 130Mn+ meals across 200+ touch points supported by 4 hi-tech kitchens built and operational, so far. 


Now, Akshaya Chaitanya wants to serve high quality, wholesome hot meal to the vulnerable families in public hospitals of Mumbai that are battling illness, poverty and hunger at the same time.  They have signed an MoU with MEDD, Maharashtra government to serve in state run hospitals. And to accomplish their objective, they have built a hi-tech kitchen in Byculla to serve 20,000 meals a day.


It is part of several initiatives across the country in collaboration with Government and Corporate partners. For instance: 

  • Bhojana-amrita program, in collaboration with corporate partners like Aurobindo Pharma, MEIL, Canara bank, Hetero drugs and many more, feeds 3500+ patient family members daily in 17 government hospitals of Hyderabad. We started with serving 85K meals in 2011-12 and served more than 2 million meals in 2020-21 and secured close to INR 220 Mn in support till date from corporates
  • Annapurna program, in collaboration with Municipal corporations across Telangana is serving a hot, nutritious meal at just ₹5/- to over 45,000 daily labourers, slum dwellers and migrants. The program was launched in 2014 with 1.4Mn meals from 21 canteens and has expanded to serve nearly 30Mn meals in 2020 from 179 canteens. Program has secured INR 1750Mn in support till date from government
  • Swasthya-Ahara was launched in 2017 to fulfil the nutritional needs of underprivileged children in Government schools. The program strives to provide healthy and hearty millet based breakfast to the children with an aim to enrich provide sufficient nutrients essential for healthy growth & development and enables them to focus on studies.
