With an aim to alleviate hunger and encourage to enrol to mainstream education, this project assists underprivileged children to help their overall development.

Children from slum neighbourhoods gain nutritional access with lunch on daily basis with periodic health interventions and hygiene education.

In an endeavour to provide good nutrition, educate and empower the underprivileged children, Bhavyata Foundation started providing daily lunch meals to the undernourished children of two Schools of Navjeevan Prathamik Vidyamandir situated at Thane from the Month of July 2018. There are 110 children in these 2 Schools of Thane. Parents of these children, who study in the school are daily wage earners, house helpers, construction workers, who reside in nearby Maijiwada slum neighbourhood.

Hunger Free Nation initiative in schools was conceived by Bhavyata Foundation, to attract street children and those in underprivileged slum neighbourhoods children to school and to get them educated by sharing the financial responsibility of the parents and thereby encouraging them to send their children for proper education to local schools. 

Menus: We vary our food menus according to the different days of the week so that the students never get bored of one particular food item. List of items that include in the lunch meals are: Sprouted Lentils Khichdi, Sambar Rice, Amti Rice, Usal Khichdi, Mung Dal Khichdi, etc.
