Feeding Children Better
Recognized as one of the best CSR activities by Bombay Stock Exchange, Mumbai for "Best Corporate Social Responsibility Practice 2010"

Agro Tech Foods Limited recognizes the importance of contributing to society in a meaningful way. The initiative taken in this direction is the Feeding Children Better program.

The Feeding Children Better program is drawn up in a manner relevant to Agro Tech’s core business - Foods. One nourishing meal a day is provided to underprivileged children at carefully selected schools across the country. We ensure that the meal is compatible with local food habits and provides about 650 kilocalories per child per meal.

Launched on November 8, 2002 at Hyderabad, the Feeding Children Better Program now extends to 7 schools and reaches out to more than 1500 children across the country.

  • Shekinah Residential School for Disabled, located at Hayath Nagar in Hyderabad. The school has 125 children, majority of whom are physically challenged. 
  • 'Balwadi' run by Aparjita Mahila Samiti in Delhi. The 'Balwadi' has 50 children, who come from economically backward families in the age group of 4 - 12 years.
  • School for 600 street children, run the All India Women’s Conference Buniadi Bidyapith at Kolkata.
  • School run by Parikrma Humanity Foundation at Bangalore where 225 children attend.
  • School for 60 slum children run by Barrackpore Avenue Welfare, Kolkata.
  • School run by Bharat Sevashram Sangha, Kolkata. The school has 250 children who attend.
  • Food partner with PVR Nest, Delhi for their Street to School Project under which one nutritional meal is provided to 260 children.
Besides providing the mid-day meal, various activities such as celebration of Children's Day, New Year lunch, meeting expenses of sports day, donation for a event on New Year, screening of a movie, medical camp, tour of Hyderabad city have been conducted.

At these schools, the Feeding Children Better program has had a significant impact in terms of increasing the attendance and bringing the number of malnourished children to nil.

ATFL employees also take ownership of the Feeding Children Better program by voluntarily contributing towards special meals, donating physio-therapeutic equipment, computers, books and bookshelves, etc. They also make periodic visits to the schools to interact with the children and join them for a meal.

Through the Feeding Children Better program Agro Tech Foods hopes to make a difference in the lives of many more children in future.

Our Feeding Children Better program was awarded a Certificate of Merit at the 5th Social and Corporate Governance Awards 2010 held on February 13th, 2010 at Bombay Stock Exchange, Mumbai for "Best Corporate Social Responsibility Practice".
