Is the caf food overpriced ?
Fanshawe college has a lot of options for food with there being a tims,subway,pizza pizza and of course oasis. Buying food from anywhere will have somewhat of a markup but oasis really does overprice their meals. At oasis a bottle of mountain dew is $3.29 at the convenience store right down the street they sell there mountain dew at a price of $1.79 that’s a mark up of 1 dollar and 50 cents. If you buy 20 drinks a semester they are taking 25 extra dollars from every student. talking to students they all said they found themselves running out of there meal plan money by the month of january with still 3 and a half months to go. Altough the minimum wage has increased it shouldent cost students more and more.
There are ways for fanshawe to go about fixing this problem they can decrease the prices, increase the allowance on students meal plans or offer more options that are cheaper so there is a wide variety.
So we talked to Students Syndey and Jenna and they said when interviewed “i just feel like the amount your getting just doesent add up” jenna continues on to say “were students i think the food should obviously be cheaper”
As the year comes to an end we wont see the prices decrease to much but it should definetly be a topic of conversation going into next year or students will eventually stop buying.
