SBA Refrigerator Cleanup

Due to complaints related to limited space in the refrigerators in the basement lunchroom, SBA must clean out food left over night.  If you have been bringing food for the week, or days at a time and keeping it in the fridge, please take the excess food home and only store food for one (1) day at a time in the fridges. We are limited on space and want everyone to have the option of using the fridges each day. This will also prevent food from being left and forgotten in the refrigerators (which will help with the smell that has recently started coming from the refrigerators.) The SBA will be throwing away food left in the fridges overnight and sanitizing/cleaning the fridges, and lunchroom starting this week. This maintenance and service will continue throughout the year.
