Interview with Mary

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 from the week and make a soup with it. You could find hot 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 personal items inmates could buy. They weren't too expensive. For example, a bag of chips cost $1.00, and a book of stamps cost $5.00.
