Shanghai Oriental TV reports that with rising food prices in the city, many white collar workers are now flocking to university canteens to have their lunch, much to the ire of some of the students who now face longer queues during lunch hour. One student interviewed here in the clip here says that because the government subsidises school canteens, they should be kept for just students. A spokesperson for the management of the college canteen (there is no mention which campus this is) has said that school canteens are open to the public and if office workers and other people in the neighbourhood want to dine in there, there is nothing that they can do to stop them. Meanwhile, a China Daily report says that the price of set meals has gone up by as much as 1 to 3 yuan in some areas in Shanghai, and to beat the rising prices, office workers have turned to meal-sharing. Apparently, some have even set up BBS forums where users can find meal mates by posting invitations or answering them.
