india: the largest school meal in the world

the indian ngo akshaya patra runs 17 industrial kitchens in eight indian states, and feeds 120 million students. these are children whose parents cannot afford a warm meal for their offspring. in the city of hubli-dharwad alone, 180000 children are catered for every day: chefs and assistants prepare 250000 naans, 4 tons of rice and 6 tons of vegetables within only a few hours with a multitude of pots simmering all night long. a myriad of drivers then shuttle the food to the schools - an extraordinary logistic and organizational achievement.
