5. Recommendation

Final Recommendations/Solutions:

We have chosen the solution of allowing them to pick the amount of food they want.
It is the modal number of suggestions from survey, where 6 out of the 10 surveys given out was filled in and the remaining 3 declined to give any sort of suggestions. It also has the least negative effects to the environment and will probably be effective in delivering the message of minimal food wastage.

This said negative effect would be that the vendors may not know how much of each type of food they need to prepare. This solution can be easily solved over a period of time when the stall holders know the approximated amount of food they need to cook. Introducing this solution might cause additional food wastage in the beginning as most vendors might say that there is a large amount of unconsumed food which will be wasted. If the vendors were to sell a lesser amount, they might incur losses and might waste some food initially. This is temporary and they would earn back by selling less food in the next few days when they have addressed the problem. Another way is to tell or persuade the vendors that they may be selling too much of a certain type of food and the students cannot finish their meals as a result, thus there will be a lot of leftovers in the dish collection bins.

A solution we propose is that they can reduce the amount of food given each serving except for specific requests. They can also ask the student if that is too much after each spoonful of food. There can be an exception in the drinks stall as the drinks and snacks are all packaged. But since as of late they started selling things like ice-creams and fruits like, guava, grapes, kiwi fruit and etc. These newly introduced food or snacks can also be resolved with a similar method. It may seem troublesome to them due to the long queues and lack of time, but they can also earn more if they carefully think about it.

Hence, we decided to allow students to pick the type and amount of food they want as well as have an advertisement streaming on the televisions all around school as a campaign to prevent wastage of food amongst SST students.
