Under the scheme, the poor will be served four chapattis, rice, dal and sabzi starting from 10 AM till 3 PM.
"We launched the Saadi Rasoi project today under which poor and needy people will be given wholesome and nutritious food at Rs 10. This is Punjab's first such project launched in the district," Fazilka Deputy Commissioner Isha Kalia said.
She said arrangements have been made to make the food available near railway stations and civil hospitals where rickshaw pullers, labourers and those who come from far off places can eat at subsidised rate.
"We will cater to only those people who are needy," she said.
"Several associations and NGOs have pooled in resources to provide wheat flour, rice etc," Ms Kalia said, adding that the Red Cross Society has also pitched in for the initiative.
"We will stock the ration for a month so that we do not run out of material. The meal will be prepared under hygienic conditions," she added.
