Rupees one crore Donated for Bhojanamrita Kitchen

The Hare Krishna Movement (HKM), Hyderabad is setting up a fully automated centralized kitchen to cook food for 15,000 people in less than 4 hours at Narsingi,  at a cost of Rs. 1.1 crore sponsored by Aurobindo Pharma Ltd. 
The kitchen facility will serve free food in Government hospitals under the Bhojanamrita Programme and also 
supply subsidized meals for the needy at various locations in the city of Hyderabad in partnership with GHMC (Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation). Apart from this, the kitchen will also provide food in market yards for farmers and hamalies.
Bhojanamrita is a project initiated by HKM Charitable Foundation to feed underprivileged (inpatient) attendants on a daily basis in government hospitals.
Underprivileged patients in government hospitals need help and assistance of family members during the course of treatment. The help & encouragement of these attendants is as important as the treatment, if not more! In life threatening diseases like cancer, the role of attendants is even more important.
 However, in government hospitals, there is a system to take care of food needs of the patients but there is no system to take care of their attendants. This makes the situation awkward since the attendants of underprivileged patients will go hungry since they won’t be able to work for their food. This is where Bhojanamrita comes into picture.
