    African Food at the school Canteen

    • Food and Drink
    I will suggest African Food to be sold at the school canteen, eg, jellof rice. Since we have many Africans on campus and also many has complained how they are always hungry at school because they can't find what they want to eat at the canteen. The school canteen can add this to their food Manu or employ African to make African Foods. I believe the canteen will make so much sales and Most Africans will be happy to go to school canteen and find what they want to eat. Thanks

12:19pm on 12 Dec 22 A message from the canteen provider "Obviously we try to please everyone best we can with how the menu is balanced, so having themes of African cuisine can’t be accommodated every day, as we have students from other counties study at the university also. We are looking at a concept being implemented which would be based around African cuisine for the new year, and I hope this will be well received by all.”

7:37am on 11 May 23 Having African food at the school is a good idea, some of us starve sometimes, because we are unable to eat the available foods and when will to buy it's end up in the bin or frequent visit to the toilet.

9:18am on 11 May 23 I think this is a good idea. Jollof rice, fried rice will be great and it will sell well.

9:40am on 11 May 23 If this is the one thing I can achieve before leaving UoD, I'd be very glad. I read @callum Young's response with the canteen's feedback and it is unsatisfactory. The feedback doesn't tell us what exactly they do to infuse African dishes in the menu or the types of African dishes they've successfully added. I eat at the canteen and there's no single African dish served. Just a few employees to make African dishes will stop us from starving in school when we have lectures an entire day. We are pleading and soliciting.

10:29am on 11 May 23 Great idea! African dishes in the canteen will be superb. If nothing at all, the rice delicacies (Jollof rice, Friedrice) with chicken or beef sauces. We will feel much more at home and belong if some African foods are being served. I’ll look forward to seeing this idea manifest. That will put loads of smiles on our faces????.

2:23pm on 11 May 23 At least, introduce jollof rice and spicy chicken first, almost every one likes rice , even the European will like the taste and fall for it when introduced. Then you can now start all other African dishes little by little. Even, it will bring more sales for the canteen
