FEU Cavite improves Canteen Services
The Canteen has a big impact on a student’s life in the campus. Every student remembers with fondness that favorite sausage roll he buys at lunch or that pizza he always shares with his friends at snack time. The canteen also has that important role of caring for our students’ nutrition and well-being.
On January 3, 2019, FEU Cavite relaunched its canteen services with a new set of concessionaires offering a variety of healthy, interesting, and reasonably priced meals for our students. Papa’s Chicken House, which has been our reliable canteen concessionaire for the past nine years in both HED and BED buildings, is now joined by other food providers such as Potato Giant, La Leah Food Services, 621 Foodchow, John Gil Catering and Party Needs, and De Cel’s Catering.
One week into the relaunch, there is positive feedback from the FEU Cavite community on this initiative. “I am very pleased that the choices of food offered are healthy and varied. I also buy fresh fruits and vegetables in our canteen and make sure to include them in my meal,” expressed one senior high school faculty.

The committee tasked to head the canteen relaunch project took six months to ensure that students’ feedback were considered in inviting and selecting the new food providers. Necessary infrastructure work was undertaken during the Christmas break to ready the place in time for the January opening.
The canteen services improvement is one of the many efforts undertaken by FEU Cavite to ensure that the students enjoy their campus life and that the environment is conducive to and supportive of their learning. The 2nd phase of the canteen improvement project will begin in the summer and will include further expansion of canteen spaces and purchase of new canteen equipment, tables and chairs, among others. Canteen operations are under the management of FEU Cavite’s Facilities and Technical Services Unit and the regulation of the Office of the Student Affairs.
