Sounds like a dumb question but I was visiting my parents tonight and metioned how we had alot of left over pulled pork from a gathering last night and I was planning on sending ds to school with a pork sandwich. My father freaked out saying you can't eat pulled pork cold and that's a horrible idea. I just said okay and walked away. But now I'm worried. Is there something I don't know about lol. Is it okay to send my munchkin with his sandwich tomorrow

I've eaten it cold before. It's not as tasty but it won't kill you.

You can, but it should stay refrigerated until he eats it.

No. The temperature in a classroom   would  not keep it cold enough to prevent harmful bacteria from growing  before lunch time.

As far as I know it's fine... As long as it was cooked and then stored properly....

Would an ice pack be enough refrigeration? Or should I just forget the idea lol

She just needs to pack it with an ice pack.

Provided it is cooked *prior* and kept cold... yes.

Above 41 degrees F is considered the "danger zone" for foods, thus when bacteria starts to grow leading food to "spoil".

Provided the lunch bag is insulated and a "cold pack" is included... it should be perfectly fine.
