Annamrita raises funds from its devotees and donors specifically for carrying out its activities such as spreading the teachings of Sanatan Dharma as propounded in Vedic scriptures like Bhagwad Gita. To do this it builds beautiful temples and carries out related humanitarian activities for the spiritual upliftment of people at large. As funds raised by Annamrita are specific donations received for such activities the same cannot be diverted for any other purpose. Just as funds raised by Annamrita Food Relief Foundation for Mid Day Meal Project cannot be utilised for the spiritual activities of Annamrita.
These are two different activities and therefore Annamrita has two separate charitable trusts for carrying out these two different kinds of humanitarian activities. Annamrita and Annamrita Food Relief Foundation are two separate entities with different and specific purposes.
Tithi Bhoj – Poor children feeding on special occasions through IFRF
Khichdi Drive – Serving meals to employees and explaining our project to them at their venue

The Government gives Annamrita Food Relief Foundation a basic cooking charge and raw rice. However we do not receive our funding from the government on time and have a backlog of crores from them. Further to develop the project we need the support from individuals and corporates in terms of sponsorship of meals for schools, sponsorship of vehicles, kitchen equipments and land. Many corporates have included us a part of their Corporate Social Responsibility project wherein, not only do they adopt schools for a year but they also receive impact reports and get to interact with the children and build on their employee engagement activity.
