On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
Guest Host: Michael Schaffer
In the summer of 2015, District of Columbia Public Schools’ food provider Chartwells agreed to pay the city $19 million over allegations of poor food quality and fraud. Almost a year later, the school system says it’s picked Chartwells’ replacements — but questions remain about how the vendors were chosen and what future oversight will look like. We talk with the Washington City Paper contributor who’s been following the story.
