Michigan Ends Food Contract with Aramark
The state of Michigan and Aramark Correctional Services have mutually agreed to terminate a three-year contract, which provides food service for state prison inmates.
WOOD-TV 8 reports the state and Aramark haven't had the most loving of relationships. Michigan fined Aramark $200,000 last year for "unapproved menu substitutions, inadequate staffing and employee misconduct." If that wasn't enough to burden the correctional relationship, there have also been maggot and rodent problems around the food in state facilities.
Trinity Services Group will become the state's new food supplier, and will transition to that role over the next two months. Food delivery should be uninterrupted, according to officials.
