MELROSE - Residents at a Melrose homeless shelter say they're getting sick from bad food.

NAICA Men's Shelter is accused of serving moldy oranges, undercooked peas and meat that residents say made five people sick.

A 311 report shows the Department of Health found an outbreak of food poisoning, but they would not go on record with answers.

The Department of Homeless Services would not return calls for comment.

Meanwhile, the Coalition for the Homeless, an advocacy group, says it's looking into the shelter's food.
