Hazel Park students say moldy food is being served at school

- Disgusting, moldy food is allegedly being handed out to students in Hazel Park.

FOX 2: "What is this?"

"It's like the popcorn chicken stuff they give us," said Ryan Farley, a ninth grader at Hazel Park High School.

The photo looks terrible and it was some of the food that was served at the Hazel Park High School. 

"Those are chicken tenders and I can say we used the same chicken tenders the following week at a board meeting," said Dr. Amy Kruppe, Hazel Park Schools superintendent. 

FOX 2: "You serve this to your board?"

"They didn't look like that, no," Kruppe said.

Good thing.  And not just the chicken tenders are a problem -but other food too.  

FOX 2: "What's that?"

"It's a blueberry muffin they gave to us," said Farley. "It's got mold all over it."

FOX 2: "Would you eat that?"

"I absolutely wouldn't eat that," said Kruppe. "We understand that could be from our school, it looks just like our muffins." 

There are other photos of bad food that were taken as well, like the Bosco sticks.  

FOX 2: "The school says it's going to look into the problem."

"They said that before," Farley said.

But we were told the school is bringing the food supplier to Hazel Park for an inspection. 

"They have a master chef coming to make sure that everybody is trained properly on how to look at food, cleanliness, stationery's as well," Kruppe said. "And we recently in the last two weeks had the health department in as well."

The Hazel Park school district serves about 3,500 meals a day - that is breakfast and lunch and it is free.

"Some kids only eat at school and if that is their only meal that is not okay," said the mother of a ninth grader. "You are getting grants for just this exact thing. That is not okay."

"The food is disgusting, it is covered in mold, and students are tired of it," Farley said. "They want food that is edible."

Luckily nobody got sick.
