Is कि used to mark a quoted clause (in this case, "the food is bad")?

Yes, it's equivalent to 'that' in English:

These people say THAT (कि) the food is bad.

It can also introduce non quoted clauses:

मुझे लगता है कि खाना बुरा होगा। I think that the food will be bad.

Another word borrowed from Persian. In Persian it is که (ke).
