'2 Minute' noodles for Bihar Flood victims
New Delhi, Sep 7: Bihar Flood victims now need not worry about cooking food in Bihar as they will be treated with '2 minute' noodles by Nestle, said Health Secretary Naresh Dayal said on Friday, Sep 5. “Nestle India has offered Rupees one million worth of noodles for relief camps. The Indian Red Cross is in charge of distribution. Cooking food during the flood affected area is a problem, so this will be of great help. It's easy to cook, easy to eat and safe as well," Dayal said.
