    deal uneatable food?

    This appears On the Cambridge First Certificate 2 Practice Exams

    ...all the pizza makers around the world who...[submit, give, provide, deal] uneatable meals"

    None of them seem correct to me, not even deal -the right answer.?

    If they are preparing food, then they do provide the food.

    Then I'm afraid that's nonsense. I can't think of a single situation where someone would "deal" food.
    People deal with food.
    People deal in food.
    People don't deal food.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
