Columbia, SC (WLTX)- After a long day in the classroom, a good meal is what students at Benedict College are hoping to find, but since their dining hall has been under renovation, some students say they are not satisfied with the service.
The food is being prepared by Perkins Food Services Management in a temporary building a few blocks off campus at 2361 Taylor Street.
The kitchen scored a 52 "C" on their routine health inspection on September 7th. They were cited for holding foods at improper temperatures, not having enough sanitizer at their sinks and condensation dripping in their food.
Benedict College released this statement to News19: "The health and safety of our students, faculty and staff are our top priority. Perkins Food Services Management has made aware of the citation and the issues will be fully resolved."
There is still a "C" hanging on the door because in their follow up inspection on September 10th DHEC found some of the same problems-giving them a 75 percent. Students say they are frustrated.
"This needs immediate action and something needs to be done. We have a good reason for our arguments and our complaints because we are paying a lot of money for this and we do deserve better," said student Carl Hayward.
