Slimy ice machines, rodent droppings reported at Atlanta school kitchens

Special to SEGAZINE

The Atlanta Public School Board of Education heard a call for action over school cafeteria concerns Monday.

A group of food service workers and APS employees want Marilyn Hughes, director of the nutrition department, to resign.

The workers and their union leaders at AFSCME say roaches and rodent droppings were found in school kitchens.

They also say there is a problem with faulty coolers that don’t keep food cold enough, and equipment that doesn’t keep hot food at the proper temperature.

They also say some kitchens don’t have food thermometers.

“Some overcook the product and some foods are under-cooked, and this is a very unsafe practice,” said cafeteria manager Frankie Jackson. “If foods aren’t cooked at correct temperatures, it will allow bacteria to grow and our kids will get sick.”
