Students will come to school for 'hot, delicious' breakfast: TN Governor launches breakfast scheme at State schools
Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit said that the state has always been in the forefront of social welfare initiatives and hoped that the scheme would acquire nation-wide stature
The "Kaalai Unavu Thittam" (breakfast scheme) is jointly implemented by the Greater Chennai Corporation and the Akshaya Patra Foundation.
"Tamil Nadu has always been in the forefront of social welfare initiatives. It is, therefore, no wonder that this programme to provide breakfast to school children is being commenced in Tamil Nadu," Purohit said.
Expressing hope that the scheme would acquire nation-wide stature, he said, "I have no doubt that the school children will eagerly look forward to come to school every morning for hot, delicious and nutritious breakfast cooked in the Akshaya Patra kitchens."
He urged volunteers, the government and other stakeholders to strengthen the movement to fulfil the vision 'Poshit Bharat Shikshit Bharat'(Nourished India, Educated India)
