If the space looks like a laboratory, even without the chemicals, I would say no to any food usage. Other people might not be aware that the chemicals have been removed and think it is ok for them in other labs.

Would any of you or your organizations permit food in a laboratory space that does not currently house chemicals, nor have current work going on with chemicals? Specifically, would you permit a class involving food preparation to occur in a lab space that the previous semester was used for a freshman level general chemistry class, even if the area were "cleaned" and all chemicals removed?
