JM: How many meals did you get per day? Deidre: We had three meals a day.
JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why. Deidre: It was disgusting, absolutely revolting at times
upon being inedible at times. There was no
salt, butter or flavor on anything. It was the
same menu seven days a week. Greasy hotdog or a
slice of bologna for breakfast with dry bread,
and grits or oatmeal for breakfast most
mornings. I lost a pound every week I was there
and I did eat what I could. Very often there was
mold on the bread.
JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals? Deidre: Well, maybe bologna sandwich and chips, because
that is as good as it got. Least favorite would
be the dry, saltless rice, with slice of bread,
with some version of a taquito. Revolting.
JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it? Deidre: There was no commissary while I was there.
There was a snack machine that inmates could get
a soda or chips or candy from. It was pretty
expensive, a soda was almost $1.50 and the chips
were $1.00 for a tiny bag.
