JAKE Dining Hall
This is a petition to improve the dining facilities of the Jake residences.
Since the JAKE dining hall closed down for construction in 2016 we have been neglected in the quality and quantity of food we have been receiving and there are a few matters that need to be addressed.
Firstly these residences do not have access to the luxuries the Men's residences receive at Monate , for example : toasted sandwiches , salads , fruit, muesli , cereals and even frozen meals and snacks . We as the Jake residences feel this is extremely unfair as we pay the same residence fees and thus expect the same food quality and services.
Secondly we have now been informed that we may no longer have access to the Klooster Dining hall on Campus which would be justified if we had a fully functional dining hall (which we do not).
It is merely impossible to get lunch at the Magrietjie and Madilief dining hall during class hours as you easily wait up to an hour for food as the service is extremely slow and the dining hall is understaffed.
The amount of money we receive on our Fundi cards is not at all enough to be able to cater for ourselves and we are prohibited from using cooking appliances in our rooms.
We have been informed that our dining hall will only be functioning in June which none of us can rely on as the same thing was promised
