MUMBAI: National Geographic Channel (NGC) is going back to school with The Akshaya Patra Foundation to showcase how the world?s largest school lunch program is cooking up millions of meals and offering India?s children a hopeful tomorrow, one plate at a time.

NGC will premiere Akshaya Patra - Shiksha ka Mahabhog on the Mega Kitchen series on 27 April, 2015 at 9 pm.

The one-hour special gives a unique look into what goes into the functioning of this mammoth kitchen ? with a focus on scale, volume, technology and process. Committed to serving the cause of providing nutrition to children, The Akshaya Patra Foundation serves wholesome food to over 1.4 million school children from 10,770 schools in 24 locations across 10 States in India.

NGC?s exclusive documentary on Akshaya Patra promotes the thought of food for education and gives interesting insights like how a whopping 175,000 meals are cooked in just about five hours with an ?inexhaustible vessel? and how gravity is used to do all the load-bearing work. To further the cause of mid-day meal programme, NGC has also launched #FoodForEducation initiative on digital media to raise awareness and donations for the Akshaya Patra Foundation.

The Akshaya Patra Foundation CEO Shridhar Venkat said, ?Akshaya Patra featuring in a special telecast premiere by National Geographic Channel is indeed a remarkable opportunity for the foundation to gain added momentum to bring awareness to the programme of providing food for education to millions of children in India. We are grateful to NGC for dedicating a full hour episode on Akshaya Patra on their iconic infotainment channel, admired the world over.?

NGC Networks and Fox International Channels business head Swati Mohan added, ?Being the leader in the space of infotainment production in India, we at Nat Geo pride ourselves in creating content that exemplifies exclusive access, well researched facts, a local flavour and international quality. ?Akshaya Patra? is an example of our continued commitment to do just that and extend the much loved franchise of 'Megafactories? in a very relevant and Indian way.?
