Valentine’s Day is a day filled with sentimental memories, such as giving gifts in school, the aroma of fresh roses, indulging in rich chocolates, and sharing romantic candlelit dinners with loved ones. There are many ways to express love on this day of celebration.

The average American spends $145 on gifts for Valentine’s Day, a day dedicated to showing love and affection. While we spend the day with our loved ones, it’s important to remember those less fortunate. This Valentine’s Day, let’s spread love and consider sharing a meal with children in need while we spend quality time with our own loved ones.

For example, Kirtika Soni, a student in eighth grade at Govt.Girls Sr.Sec.School in Gandhi Nagar, Bhilwara, faces challenges with her family’s ability to provide adequate meals. Before receiving mid day meals from Akshaya Patra, Kirtika faced poor health due to irregular and nutritionally lacking meals.
