If the lab has been totally decontaminated and cleaned up well ,I don’t see a problem with food preparation . We have a procedure of total lab decontamination before renovation and or construction on our website if you want to use it a model for your school
Afterward, maybe label the lab as” food preparation lab only no chemicals deliveries or handling allowed” .

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?
