Commonwealth Games village kitchen gets operational

Three thousand and five hundred meals were cooked and served on Monday at the Commonwealth Games Village as the kitchen began functioning.

The organising committee (OC) is trying to get it fully operational for the 700 delegates from the participating nations who are expected to arrive on September 16 when the Village opens. While the menu was a simple vegetarian fare on the first day, the number of dishes is slated to go up as the Games take off.

Said a senior OC official, "The menu was vegetables, dal, chawal and parantha." The food, which was served to the OC staff and the contract workers in the kitchen, will be ramped up in the next few days, with desserts and more dishes being added. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be cooked everyday from now on for the OC staff and workers, with the kitchen churning out around 5,500 meals per day for the staff during the peak Games time.

Sources in OC said the kitchen and dining area is being given finishing touches like installing of coffee dispensers and drink vending machines (Coca Cola is the official Commonwealth Games sponsor). The kitchen, spread over 3,000 sqm, has been operational for around a week now, and is expected to reach a peak level of 30,000 meals daily from October 3. The workforce dining area, which is separate from the athletes section, will be open mainly for the OC staff.

The security personnel will also be served food from September 15 when Delhi Police takes over the venue. These personnel will be catered to by Agarwal Foods, the caterers for the workforce.
