Sisodia said Lt Governor Anil Baijal showed "positivity" for the proposal and "has plans to provide land to the foundation to set up kitchens for serving mid-day meals in government schools".
The deputy chief minister said in the Delhi Assembly that the existing mid-day meal contractors are not dedicated towards the "spirit of service".
He said the government is working on a strict tendering process under which action will be taken against contractors if they were found negligent in serving mid-day meals.
"On a pilot basis, we will serve mid-day meals to around 40,000 students through the Akshaya Patra Foundation," he said.
The Akshaya Patra Foundation, on its website, claims it serves mida-day meals to 1.6 million children in 13,808 schools across 12 states in India.
During the discussion on mid-day meal, several AAP MLAs also said the foundation be allowed to serve mid-day meals in all city government schools as it has "expertise" in this field.
