Interview with Clinton and Tyrone

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Clinton: Three.
Tyrone: Three.

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Clinton: Terrible.
Tyrone: It was pretty nasty. Breakfast is at 4:40 in the morning. Lunch is at 10 or 10:30 and dinner is at 4:00. Breakfast is a piece of bread, jelly, orange and milk.

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Clinton: I didn't like any of it, and nobody did. Its made by a corporation that has the main goal of cutting costs. They manufacture plastic food bags and ship in that jail food everyday. They don't care, the food is terrible.
Tyrone: They serve soy meat, leftover beans from the day before. There were bones and cartilage in the bologna. I would try not to eat the jail food and instead waited for my family to put money on my books so I could buy food off commissary.

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Clinton: You could buy your own commissary. That's it.
Tyrone: No. Only if you bought stuff off commissary.
