Akshaya patra : feeding India's schoolchildren / [Case Study] David Upton [et al.] - Boston, MA : Harvard Business School, 2007. - 23 p. : ill, map ; 30 cm.

Describes a highly successful effort by an Indian Charity to feed poor schoolchildren at lunchtime. This provides two significant benefits. It improves nutrition for the children, and helps keep them in school since the provided meal is occasionally the only meal they will have in the day. The organization has had great success in an urban environment, but now seeks a wholly different operations strategy as it stretches out to rural India.
