DLF Foundation, part of real estate company DLF Limited, on Friday donated 11 trucks to the food relief foundation of International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon).

With this, DLF has aligned itself with the state government's mid-day meal programme for underprivileged children in government schools.

Chief executive officer of DLF Foundation lieutenant general Rajender Singh said, "It's been years that we have been carrying out programmes for the betterment of the underprivileged. We have donated 11 Bolero Maxi trucks to the Iskcon food relief foundation. The vehicles will help distribute mid-day meals among poor kids in government schools."

The initiative supports the Central government's "education for all" scheme, according to which every child till 14 years of age gets free education.

The scheme also includes free mid-day meals in schools.
