As widely reported on Boston area television news, a Boston City councilman acting on a tip discovered several instances of food that had been frozen/stored in school cafeteria freezers and coolers possibly long past the suggested use date of the food. In reality, as much as any possible health or nutritional concerns raised over this matter of which the FDA (?) said there was none, this near wasting of food likely shows the widespread levels of inefficiencies which lead to the ever present school system funding difficulties and government waste of taxdollars.
Personally, I think it’s odd that no one else (politicians, school folks, or media reporters alike) seems concerned about the potential wasting of taxpayer funds with what is sure to become the wasting of food.
