‘Moldy, unappetizing, slimy’: Brooklyn pol slams quality of public school lunches amid budget cuts

State Sen. Iwen Chu is calling on Mayor Eric Adams to immediately address the decline in quality of public school lunches due to budget cuts, amid concerns that students are going hungry and the impact a poor diet has on their learning abilities. 

The state representative for southern Brooklyn said her office has received a litany of complaints from parents about the standard of food being served up in the city’s public schools following the $60 million cut made to the Education Department’s budget by the Adams administration in November.
