VESTAL, N.Y. — A new food service provider is on the way to Broome County.
Sodexo will now serve the Willow Point Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and the Office for Aging.
Back in February, Pennsylvania-based corporation Aramark came under fire when food was allegedly arriving late at Willow Point, forcing residents to skip meals.
Staff at the nursing home claimed food temperatures were consistently out of federal regulation.
The county expects to save $1 million with the new contract.
"I think they're going to be extremely excited. I still get questions on a daily basis of what that transition is going to change. It's something they've been looking forward to," said Ryan LaClair, Willow Point Nursing Home administrator.
The transition should be finished by the end of the year.
