BREVARD COUNTY, Florida – Below is a list of Brevard County Public Schools, charter schools, and private schools that received an “unsatisfactory” rating during a food health inspection by the Florida Department of Health within the last year.
“They’re all garbage,” said a Florida Department of Health employee who has worked at six different Brevard Public Schools.
“I can’t tell you how many kids I’ve sent home after lunch for stomach aches, vomiting, and diarrhea. I dread 11 am every day cause I know the kids will be coming down after eating school lunch.”
“I’m not gonna lie, I thought they were faking it,” she added.
“But when I noticed the trend in all the schools, I realized it was the food. I started asking them if they had school lunch or packed lunch and 99% were school lunch.”
The list contains the school name and date of the unsatisfactory inspection.
