I would defenatly not do it, esepically if you have larger consrtictors. My retics get very on edge when food is in the room and it makes them hard to handle they snap at everything that moves, my burmese used to be the same way very stong feeding respone. If the food is there all the time it can cause some problems not so much health probs but behaviural ones. You must remember that snakes hunt by smell for the most part.
Ops forgot to add that you must always wash your hand after handeling food items so you don't smell like food, now if the food is in the room you may inadvertantly smell of prey and get nailed.
