HEALTHY AND AFFORDABLE FOOD FOR STUDENTS
Socially insecure students will soon be provided with the opportunity of free nutrition.

This is one of the most urgent issues today in almost all our universities. Still the appropriate conditions to organize this process are absent. Recently this issue has been actively discussed.

 

Today, the Assistant to the President of Armenia Avetis Berberyan and Member of Parliament of the RA, Coordinator of Board of Trustees of Youth Foundation of Armenia Karen Avagyan visited YSU to discuss the issue mentioned above. They noted that by the presidential instruction a new project is envisaged in the field of providing with free nutrition the socially insecure students.

 

“We have already visited five state universities and discussed this issue with students. We learn of the position of students regarding this issue,” - says Avetis Berberyan.

 

According to Karen Avagyan, the variants are many, but we will focus on the idea of common student canteen, where the card system will be applied. The socially insecure students will be provided with all the services free of charge and the costs for all the others will be quite affordable. Another variant is just provide the socially insecure students with this amount of money.

 

“A canteen should be opened in each institution of higher education, which will offer affordable and healthy food. I think it can become a basis for a new culture,” - says YSU Student Council Chairman Raffi Qaramyan.


YSU Vice-rector Ruben Markosyan also shares this opinion. He says that the student should have the opportunity to use services of the corresponding canteen or spend money for other needs.

 

YSU Rector Aram Simonyan added that this issue should be solved as soon as possible.
