Half of Bishkek schools have no conditions for cooking hot meals

Meals for schoolchildren are organized in adapted premises in five municipal schools of Bishkek; there are no kitchen facilities upon the project. The Chief Doctor of the Center for State Sanitary and Epidemiological Surveillance of Bishkek, Arthur Buyuklyanov, said this at a meeting in the mayor’s office

According to him, 49 out of 96 schools have no conditions for cooking hot meals, the kitchen units in them are built as servery canteens.

«There are no production workshops in the canteens, not enough storage, household premises and washing baths, which leads to a violation of the technology of cooking hot food and washing dishes,» he said.

In addition, due to overcrowding and lack of seats in the dining rooms, elementary school students are fed from the first break, although, according to the requirements, this should be done only at the big break.

Recall, 14 soms are allocated for food per schoolchild, and 28 soms — at special needs schools.
