BOLIVIA, NC (WWAY) -- The cafeteria that provides the food for the Brunswick County Meals on Wheels program is back on track. As of today, the Aramark operated kitchen scored 97 by the Health Department. This score is high enough to be used by the program.

That score was the quite the improvement from the previous 85.5 score it received in September

Senior Resources Executive Director Jim Fish says the Meals on Wheels program will continue to ensure that the cafeteria stays up to grade. The program had been working with another group that catered for the meal deliveries until the cafeteria cleaned up its act.

My question is: how was this

My question is: how was this place allowed to get so bad in the first place? Meals on Wheels is very important and every effort should be made to keep everything clean and in good working order. There is no excuse for it.

You get what you pay for ...

What exactly do you expect when FREE FOOD is concerned?

That was an unkind thing to say

A lot of senior citizens THROUGH NO FAULT OF THEIR OWN rely on these meals. You FREE FOOD remark was unkind in its tone.

Many of those seniors pay a stipend for the service. It's not necessarily free.

REGARDLESS of the price, commercial food prep should be sanitary at all times. The company, Aramark, that was doing the prep work is a large organization that's been around for a long time and in this case they definately dropped the ball. I would be very surprised if their Chef/Kitchen Manager didn't have an unpleasant conversation with his/her superiors.
