I.Metshin: “We will introduce the standard of high-quality and healthy nutrition to every school in Kazan and to every student”
By the beginning of the school year, 43 canteens were
renovated in Kazan schools, which allowed increasing the area of canteens at
the educational facilities and the number of seats in them by more than 2
thousand. Another 980 places appeared in the canteens of two new schools. From
September 1, canteens began to work in the format of a school restaurant at 113
“We have set a priority task to make comfortable
places of eating for children. At first, the residents were skeptical – they
said that this was only for elite schools. However, today this is already our
standard of municipal school meals – healthy, high quality, in good conditions.
And we will definitely introduce this level to every school and to every
student”, - Ilsur Metshin said at the Business Monday meeting at the Executive
Committee of Kazan.
During the renovation this summer, power, water
supply, sewerage and ventilation systems were replaced in 43 canteens, a large
amount of decoration was carried out, as well as furniture was purchased. Since
the beginning of the school year, 159 thousand schoolchildren have been eating
in school canteens, said Rima Mukhamedshina, Director General of the Department
of Food and Social Nutrition.
Taking into account the schools opened this year, the
number of seats in educational facilities has increased by 3 thousand, and in
just the last three years – by 6.5 thousand, she noted.
“After a pause caused by the pandemic, we continued a
large-scale renovation, - Ilsur Metshin commented. - Unfortunately, the scale
of many tasks that we set and implement does not allow us to get a prompt
result. Nevertheless, for a certain time we manage to fulfill these tasks. We
will continue this work”.
