"But rest assured," he continued, "We will make sure they are prepared in a sanitary environment, and that the next shipment will feature the maggots inside the packaging as they were supposed to be in the first place."

Aramark, the district's food service management company, currently is working with dining services staff at all 22 schools to conduct quality assurance inspections related to receipt of deliveries.

Ah, Aramark, the rent-seeking maggots who have attached themselves to every school district in America. Aramark: fark them kids.

There should be a word for an overly-specific "reassurance" that either puts a concern into your head that wasn't there before, or makes it very clear that whatever they're saying didn't happen must have absolutely happened.

Yes, as I'm sure you recall, Aramark is the food vendor that decided it was a great idea to change the menu on the first day of Black History Month at Nyack Public Schools to chicken and waffles and watermelon.

I counted over 1000 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches my mom made for me for my elementary school years.

Even at a young age I knew right from the start that school food sucked to high heaven and I was better off bringing my own lunch.

I can count the number of times I had to pay for school lunch.  3

and two of those was in high school.

They'll be OK if they just stick to drinking school milk.

Damn straight.  That guy obviously hates capitalism.  Just look at what kind of crap school kids are served for lunch in socialist countries.

Yeah, I drank plenty of malk when I was a kid.  I'm healthy as a horse now.  Gotta go, doctor is calling me with the results of my bone density test.

"And if they did happen to eat one, that's on you parents for failing to teach your children not to eat maggots at an early age" he subsequently added.

When I was in middle school in the early '90s our school food manager got in trouble for serving the kids frozen food that had been in the school freezers for five to seven years past the expiration dates.  He couldn't understand why the parents and superintendent were so mad at him.  He insisted it was still edible because it was frozen and couldn't have spoiled, so what was the problem?  They could just cut any bad parts off the pizza

// Yes, he was fired

kermit the forg: our school food manager got in trouble for serving the kids frozen food that had been in the school freezers for five to seven years past the expiration dates.


This now explains why the pizza in my school always tasted so rubbery.

Every Friday, it was frozen pizza or frozen fish sticks.

Stunk up the whole school when they cooked it too.

I could tell what day of the week it was just by the smell alone.

Don't mind the maggots.  Sha doobie, my brain's been battered
My friends, they come around they
Flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter, flatter
Pile it up, pile it up, pile high on the platter.


Well, that was a little cryptic.  But it had a nice beat, and I can dance to it.  Honey?  What's the tipping protocol on singing telegrams?

When I was in elementary school* I could walk home for lunch(I can't believe that was allowed, but at the same time high school kids had to stay on campus) and so did most the other kids there was no meal served you had to bring your lunch if you ate at school

Man I'm old
I also had only half day kindergarten

I was the last HS class (1983) to be able to enjoy leaving campus during free periods, (lunch, study hall)

We had 40 minutes to do whatever the hell we wanted to.

Don't you dare say a PB&J is a decent lunch here on Fark, you'll get dog piled about what crap it is.

Fine, one would hope none of the kids were served product and consumed said product contaminated with maggots.

Now what what i'd want to see is an investigation to how the hell the product got as far as potentially being served and that that vendor's contact was cancelled and a new vendor signed up.

Seriously those maggots should have been spotted right away and the delivery refused on grounds it was contaminated and unserveable / unusable.
