Guam - The Department of Education's new food services provider is working feverishly to get the island's cafeterias back in good condition to pass inspection. Sodexo was at Simon Sanchez High School's cafeteria today to review the work that needs to be done as the company works with DOE to make the necessary repairs to the numerous deficiencies that were noted during an inspection last week.
The Yigo cafeteria, which is a primary site for food preparation, had broken equipment, roof leaks, clogged drains, and rat and cockroach droppings. Sodexo is hopeful to get the repairs done as soon as possible to have re-inspections done in time for the start of school on August 22.
