Interview with Todd and Antwon

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Todd: we got three meals per day
Antwon: We received three small meals a day the size a kindergardener would have.

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Todd: it was terrible the food was never hot hardly no salt or pepper just bland and you had to wait for the officers to bring your plates to the table and then they would let everybody out of the cells at once so every body would come running out to grab a tray
Antwon: I would give the meals a -1 out of 10 because they were not portioned for grown men and it was just all around disgusting. I didnt eat for a week when I first arrived because my stomach couldnt handle it. I had to basically starve myself until I had no choice but to eat it.

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Todd: no i didnt like any of it but after a while you just have to accept the fact that you have to eat to survive so pretty much it was a life or death situation there were some thing like chicken and rice where they boiled whole chickens and rice together that was just awful
Antwon: My favorite meals was the tacos and my least favorite meals was the catmeat we called it because it had green stuff in it and nobody had no idea what it was and it stinks.

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Todd: yes if you had money on your books you could make an order once A WEEK to get things like cakes chips juice candy and personal hygeine items
Antwon: The commissary was like Christmas to the inmates but the prices were three times as much as you would purchase it on the street. No there were no other snacks provided by the jail voluntarily.
