Diane: terriable, and they never gave you enough. I am a small girl don't eat much I weigh 95lbs. and I was still hungry after every meal.
Norman: VERY POOR it lacked any flavor hot food was served cold and the cold food was served luke warm it seemed there was not REAL meat served it was some kind of soy bean product or tofu or something any meat just tasted horrible and the portions dont seem to be enough for a grown man to survive off of
Andrea: food was edible, no flavor, a piece of real fruit once every other week - food is always the same - slice of bologna & cheese for every lunch, everyday. all fake like meat for the dinners, bread is stale & no milk unless medically needed no real juice - kool-ade like drink

Jenna: what you could buy on commissary
Diane: no way
Norman: yes but you had to get them from commissary when you went.the lines were very long and it was very expensive and they put a limit on what you could have and how much you could have when you went
Andrea: commissary is double or more the price of regular stores, was extremely limited in variety, can only be pre-ordered once a week, was also limited to how much you can actually spend, was very hard for people to put money in your account, - half the time the credit or debit machine was out & cash or checks are not accepted
