JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Ryan: THREE
Alex: We were served three meals a day.
George: 3
Diana: You get three meals a day
Maria: We got three meals a day.

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Ryan: FAIR
Alex: On a scale of 1-10 I would rank it a solid 3. Breakfast at 4:30 am- milk (1 pint) cold cereal, 2 hard boiled eggs and a roll or bread- sometimes oatmeal. Lunch at 9:30 am- lunchmeat sandwich chips or cookie, fruit. Dinner at 5 pm, usually varied but it was always warm- like spaghetti or meatballs with noodles- always came with a vegetable bread and powdered juice.
George: 2OUT OF10
Diana: Gross I can't even rate it there ain't nothing good about jail food it's jail food no seaoning no flavor not real meat at all it's not cooked right it smells gross I couldn't take one bite without gaging it's not a good taste to have in your mouth high!
Maria: It was pretty bad at the Pierce County Jail. Once a week, we had commissary, which provided us with all sorts of goodies, from candy bars and soda pop to beauty items, such as hair stuff, like gels and such. You know, though, I think breakfast was the best meal.

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Ryan: BREAKFAST WAS GOOD
Alex: Nope all tasted the same.
George: COLD CERAL WAS OK
Diana: I didn't like anting about jail food it was gross like dog food I wouldn't recommended it it's very disgusting
Maria: I sure did! I LOVED French Toast with peanut butter. I'd never had it before, you see, and so I was on a tear.

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Ryan: YES, YOU COULD BUY STORE
Alex: Yes they had a good size commissary list.
George: IF YOU HAD MONEY ON YOUR ACCONT
Diana: Yes commissary was very expensive. Like twice street price plus generic product not good quality. But it'll keep you from being hungry so it'll do plus jail food sucks so you'll need extra food to get threw
Maria: Oh, yea! There were all sorts of goodies you could order from commissary: candy bars, soda pops, etc. But it was spendy! Really spendy. In fact, commissary became a sort of bartering tool that folks would use.
