“The ‘Jan Rasoi’ will serve nutritious, hygienic food to the needy people at Rs 1 per plate. A total of 500 persons will be provided food each day and second serving will also be allowed,” Gambhir said to PTI.
An aide of the MP said that the food will comprise of rice, dal, and vegetable curry on special occasions.
In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the canteen will feed 50 people at a time, Gambhir said.

He said that the next community kitchen will be opened in Mayur Vihar district.
“I have always felt that everybody has the right to healthy and hygienic food irrespective of caste, creed, religion or financial condition. It is saddening to see the homeless and destitute not being able to get even two square meals a day,” Gambhir told reporters.
