BACKGROUND

Faculty of Medicine, University of Kelaniya, Ragama, offers two undergraduate degree programme; MBBS and BSc Speech and Hearing Sciences. Nearly 1000 students have been studying in these programmes at a given time. The majority of the student population have been given hotel facilities, as they are from various districts, and they are expected to attend clinical and practical training over extended hours. There are two canteens, which provide meals for students, who stay in hotels, and students, who come from home. With rising expenses and low economic background, many students expect meals for a reasonable price without compromising the quality and hygienic conditions. Fulfilling the basic physical and physiological needs is an essential requirement of creating a conducive environment for learning. Although the two canteens have been tendered out it has been proven to be futile in achieving these goals. We have received repeated complaints from students that the quality of food and the hygienic condition is abysmal. People, who win tenders appears to be incompetent in providing quality food for a large crowd and they tend to leave without completing their contacts periods.
OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT
We are in a need to improve the canteen facilities of the faculty with the aim of
  • Reducing the price of food by reducing waste and improving the efficiency of food
  • preparation
  • Improving the quality of food through the mechanization of the kitchen
  • Enhancing student satisfaction with meals and dining facilities
Therefore, the expansion project of the hotel canteen has several objectives:
  1. To improve the seating capacity and space of the existing canteen
  2. To renovate the storage and preparation areas of the existing canteen
  3. To mechanize and automate the functions of the kitchen
