NGO Profile :
The ISKCON Food Relief Foundation (IFRF) was founded to provide nutritious food to underprivileged children. IFRFs Annamrita services the Government of India's Midday Meal Scheme in elementary schools. Currently, the IFRF's programmes outreach extends to over 1.2 million children in aided and non-aided schools across 10 states in India. IFRF is a not-for-profit, non-religious, non-sectarian public charitable trust.

Annamrita believes in feeding needy children with nutritious and hearty amrita (ambrosia) that will ensure they keep returning to school because the food is simply too delicious to miss. Their aom is to reach underprivileged children in aided and non-aided schools. For many children, The Midday Meal is the only complete meal they get during the entire day. The Midday meal program has produced dramatic results : increased school enrollment, reduced dropouts rates and better attention spans.

Annamrita kitchens are equipped with the best technology to aid bulk cooking, including steam cookers for fuel efficiency that retain 100% nutrients, in an eco-friendly infrastructure. IFRF ensures the food is prepared with the highest standards of hygiene, and with quality ingredients that meet the nutritional requirements of growing children. The meals are modified slightly in each state to appeal to the tastes of that region.

The Annamrita program has witnessed colossal growth, from 20,719 children when it began to its current scale. The organisation remains committed to the cause of providing nutrition to needy school children, either through collaboration with the Government or independently.
