CALHOUN, Ga.-Surya recently raised an additional $29,000 for The Akshaya Patra Foundation, which it partnered with earlier this year. Surya's president, Satya Tiwari, and a team of Surya employees ran in the Atlanta AllState Half-Marathon on behalf of the nonprofit in a program it called Miles for Meals. Having exceeded its initial goal by more than $4,000, the money raised will help the charity to feed 1,941 children over the coming year.
One of the world's largest non-governmental (NGO)-run school feeding programs, The Akshaya Patra Foundation serves more than 1.3 million children in rural India freshly prepared, nutritious meals every day. Earlier this year, Surya donated $250,000 to the foundation.
