14:43, March 20, 2012

The price of each dish at canteens on college campuses in Beijing should be no more than 6 yuan ($0.95), Legal Evening News reported Monday.

According to the guiding standard on students' diet costs issued by the Beijing Municipal Commission of Education, the price of each dish should be no more than 6 yuan and weigh no less than 250 grams.

Colleges across the country are taking methods to reduce the cost of food, the report said.

Half of the food for 14 colleges and universities in Beijing are purchased directly from the source, saving 30 million yuan ($4.75 million) each year.
