Students and administrators at Alabama State University have expressed outrage after a recent inspection of the school’s dining hall revealed roaches, dirty ice machines and improper storage temperatures for food items.
WNCF-TV in Montgomery yesterday reported on the failing score for ASU’s food service operation, managed by Gourmet Services, and got stern responses from members of the campus community.
“I heard there were roaches in the pizza area, dirty ice machines, and cheese below temperature degrees,” student Leslie Knight tell us.
“I heard that the cafeteria is real unsanitary,” says student Derrick Moore.
Alabama State President William Harris says that a failing score on the 60-day follow-up review of the food service operation will result in the university seeking another vendor. Other campus officials called the 74 score an ‘anomaly’ in the years of service by Gourmet.
