Aiya.. so many comments is based on 1 picture only..
Mebbe that guy happen to get a not-good share of the packet? there's bound to be variations for so many packets of food made rite..
Maybe a sample size of pictures of 10 different packets of the same batch should be taken..
Then, judging be the average portion size etc.. would be more fair.. there could be some packets with more veggie and bigger pieces of meat.. and maybe more tasty also..
Our children deserve better food!
SFI may not have the kitchen to cook such large amount of food.
If you cannot deliver so why do you tender?
So for $2.30 we feed our children with those food?
I will definetly complaint and not feedback to the authority! This is rubbish!
Maybe we should visit the YOG Village and see for ourself what is being served!
Our guest is important but our children .. to me, more important!
Please read the Straits Times article.
http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking...ry_565714.htmlSingapore Food Industries (SFI), a subsidiary of the Singapore Airport Terminal Services (Sats), provided the food. It had been awarded a $5.5 million catering services contract by the YOG organising committee.
When contacted, a Sats spokesman confirmed that the meal in the picture was part of a meal provided to the YOG workforce. A bottled drink and some fruit were also provided, she added.
No or poor quality control!
BTW can anyone provide a pic of the latest food served?
SFI and the YOG committee love people like you to share their asumption - they won't mind, they are volunteer afterall. Do some extend they are people who also state that - if want to volunteer don't complain. My assumption of these people are - they have a profit sharing with SFI. We are talking about how much does it cost for that packet lunch? If it is $5.00, you also don't mind?
I understand the logic for better quality and quantity of food for the foreign atheletes. This is a good platform to invest in potential Foreign Sports Talent.
Live our dreams, fly our flag.
After I took the pic, I asked her how is the food in the village? She said, "Oishii".
photography makes one sees things from all angles.
showing agreement that the meal is acceptable for consumption is very different from saying that the price paid for it is equitable.
as for that, i don't know enough details to comment sufficiently on the amount being paid to SFI. do you?
just give them meal allowance best... i kena volunteered for NPD like many others... eat KFC until sian... i just go opp kallang lesiure park eat BK....
give them $ to settle themselves, i would be happy if they give me money, i can eat what i want... just ask someone to da bao for everyone...
from what i know about SFI...here's a good example:
Jurong camp has 2 camps. Camp 1 (Div HQ with Div Comd and 3rd Signals), Camp 2 (Combat Engineers).
Food was catered by SFI
Camp 2's food was pretty much crap most of the time... i got my first taste of Camp 1's food when my friend from the Div HQ invited me to their cookhouse. their food not only tasted better, it smelt WAY better and looked WAYYYYY better as well.
moral of the story is:
the food is better when you're eating where the big boss eats. other than that, expect sub-standard food. food elsewhere in the YOG served by SFI is wayyy better because of WHO it's being served to
