Government Run Foodcare

Do you think the government will manage health care as effectively as it manages school lunches?

But Councilor at Large John R. Connolly, who found out-of-date food in freezers at four school cafeterias in surprise visits earlier this month, said he has found documents that suggest high schools served frozen grilled egg patties in January that had been bought during the 2008-2009 school year.

Sounds delicious, eh?

The School Department disputed Connolly’s interpretation of the documents, but officials acknowledged that there is no way to accurately determine the age of food from their invoices. The same records appear to show that the department routinely ordered food items, such as chicken patties, that it already had in abundance in storage, Connolly said.

Insulin anyone?
