Everyone across the country is trying to help the people of Chennai in whichever way they can, even if it means sharing a relief information post on social media. Joining in is restaurant-finder and delivery application Zomato, which has come up with a customised offer called ‘Meal for Flood Relief’.

In this, if you buy a meal for the people in Chennai, Zomato will add one to it and send meal for two in areas where people are stranded because of heavy downpour. The prices are economic. A meal for two is for Rs 100 and meal for four is priced at Rs 400.

A lot of restaurants are supporting the initiative, including Adyar Ananda Bhavan, Prems Graama Bhojanam, Kolapasi, Dindigul Thalappakati, Nawab Sheikh Biryani, Meat and Eat, and more.

Deepinder Goyal, Founder and CEO of Zomato, took to Twitter to share the offer and immediately after the twitterati were abuzz with speculation.

Though, there were some who consider it as a move to make money.

But Goyal quickly responded with the quip:

However, there are many who think of the initiative as a good move to ensure people receive food in flood-affected areas given the company’s wide network of delivery.

In only a few hours, people have bought 15,000 meals, which means, Zomato has or is in the process of delivering 30,000 meals to affected people.
