The Deputy Chairman of Kyiv City State Administration, Hanna Starostenko, said this while checking the quality of hot breakfasts at school No.90 in Pechersky district in Kyiv, the administration’s press service reports.
“According to our calculations, the average cost of qualitative school food should be not less than UAH 12. Since the beginning of the current year, we have found the funds to raise the cost of one hot breakfast from UAH 8 to UAH 12. At the same time, by allocating additional funds, the city must be sure of their efficient use,” she said.
Starostenko also added that last week the Kyiv Council decided to allocate an additional UAH 35 million so that all districts in Kyiv could recalculate the cost of school food, hold additional tender procedures and develop a balanced menu for schools.
In general, UAH 330 million has been allocated this year for school and kindergarten nutrition programs.
