SITA supported the foundation's Mid-day Meal Program in Vrindavan and Bhubaneshwar and fed 1,500 school children with a contribution of INR 1,425,000. We've continued support for the foundation by taking part in the Pledge to Nourish campaign in August-September 2018. This campaign aims to reduce food waste and ensure the hungry are properly fed.
