JM: How many meals did you get per day? Mary: We were given 3 meals per day at 4am, 11am, and 4pm.
JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why. Mary: I would give the food a 5 out of 10. It wasn't all
bad, but some of it was completely disgusting.
There was never any seasoning added, but you were
given 2 packets of salt and pepper. The only thing
we had to drink during meals was juice (which was
nasty!) or water.
JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals? Mary: My favorite food was the pancakes and french toast
in the morning. My least favorite was the soup on
Sundays. They would take all the leftover food
the week and make a soup with it. You could find
dog pieces, rice, noodles, and anything else they
had in one soup.
JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it? Mary: There were no snacks offered. Commissary had a lot
of different snacks, hygiene, clothing, and
items inmates could buy. They weren't too
For example, a bag of chips cost $1.00, and a book
of stamps cost $5.00.
