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.
