- LG India’s “Life’s Good Nutrition Program” is set to benefit 59,202 children in 808 government schools across the country.
- The program is a collaborative effort between LG India, Akshaya Patra, and Annapoorna Trust, organizations known for their commitment to providing nutritious meals to children.
- The Akshaya Patra Foundation, the implementing partner for the Government’s PM-POSHAN (formerly the Mid-Day Meal Scheme), is a key partner in this initiative.
- LG India is also working with Sri Sathya Sai Annapoorna Trust’s Morning Nutrition Program to ensure a nutritious start to the day for these young students.
- The program not only aims to address malnutrition but also supports the cognitive and physical development of India’s future leaders.
Mr. Hong Ju Jeon, MD-LG INDIA, expressed, “At LG, we believe that a brighter future begins with a healthy foundation. We are dedicated to assisting and backing the Government, and we have been aligning our CSR initiatives accordingly.
