Mr Noodles, the country's leading noodles brand, has joined with the Bidyanondo Foundation to accelerate the EkTakayAhar (one-taka meal) programme, a food support for the coronavirus-hit people.
Thus, Mr Noodles distributed food among 40,000 poor families through Bidyanondo Foundation, said a press release on Sunday.
Toshan Paul, deputy general manager (marketing) at Mr Noodles said general holidays are going on across the country to contain the spread of the coronavirus. This is because many people now have no jobs to do.
"Considering the woes of poor people, we have been involved with EkTakayAhar (one taka meal) programme carried by the Bidyanondo Foundation to help poor families. The effort will be continued in the future," he said.
