By using keywords search '1110000 Laddus for Ayodhya,' and 'Ram Mandir Ayodhya kitchen' we found various sources that prove that these claims are True.

As per ABPLive, TV9.com, Dainik Bhaskar, 1.11 lakh gram flour Laddus are being prepared in pure desi ghee. These will be distributed among the people as prasad. Devraha Baba's organization will be distributing laddus.

Preparation of these laddus by 15 special chefs of Vindhyachal began on August 3. This Prasad of Lord Sri Ram will be delivered to all pilgrimage sites in the country. Laddus are being kept in three different types of steel containers.

As per Prabhat Khabar, Mahavir Temple Trust of Patna will arrange a community banquet for the devotees of Ram temple in Ayodhya and the name will be 'Ram Rasoi'.

The Trust plans to make regular meals and 'Raghupati' laddus for devotees in this kitchen. The trust started a community kitchen 'Sita Rasoi' in Sitamarhi, the birthplace of Sita where free meals are now being served. In Ayodhya, a similar kitchen will be started near Lord Ram Janambhoomi site, which will be named as 'Ram Rasoi'.
