Bangkok school accused of cafeteria corruption by watchdog group

One Bangkok school is under fire after it was revealed that ‘free’ milk is being sold for 5 baht a cup and the provided breakfast is just cheap instant noodles. The Thai Anti-Corruption Club Facebook page has been posting photos of the cheap breakfast and has sparked discussion about where the money allocated for student food is going.

Napat Food Company was hired by the Wat Yannawa School at 200,000 baht a month to make food dishes at 40 baht per person. The canteen staff is allegedly making cheaper dishes for the students, like instant noodles with chicken and omelettes, which cost around 15 baht per portion.

One video posted by the group shows the state-subsidised milk, intended to be free for the students, being dumped into a pot. The group also claims the milk is being sold to the students at 5 baht per cup.

“It makes me wonder where the budget has gone.”

The watchdog group also said parents are prohibited from entering the school’s canteen. They say teachers and staff were told to sell snacks to the students and surveillance cameras were installed to watch them.
