News: Ramen Rallies Relief for Haiti

Two exchange students from South Korea at Marshall University in Huntington, West Virginia organized a ramen noodle cook-off to raise money for Haiti. Students competed in the "National Collegiate Ramen Noodle Cook-Off" this past Saturday.

From the article:

Students and community members used ramen noodles, $5 in ingredients of their choices and the supplied ingredients such as brown sugar, garlic powder, honey, ketchup, hot sauce and cinnamon, Rowland said.

The participants had 30 minutes to prepare a unique ramen noodle dish that was then judged for flavor, ingredients and plating.

All proceeds went to the Palms for Life Fund, a nonprofit organization helping with earthquake relief efforts in Haiti.

I think it's really cool to see something like ramen being used for good like this.
