JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Gordy: three meals if you eat them they taste like crap
Jeff: We got three meals breakfast lunch and dinner
Philip: Three meals were served daily.

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Gordy: as I stated above they are horrible
Jeff: The food was not bad you become used to your environment it was not the most pleasant but I certainly had worse from other facilities all inmates had their own favorite raise mine happened to be the lunch tray on Wednesday is which was peanut butter sandwiches, for the high protein content
Philip: The food was awful. Meals were cold and bland and very small portions. There were little to no accommodations for dietary restrictions. Fresh fruit or produce given was often rotted or moldy. What was not consumed during mealtime couldn not be saved to be eaten later. Malnourishment at its finest

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Gordy: None
Jeff: My favorite breakfast was pancakes and sausage and eggs my favorite lunch was peanut butter sandwiches then there would have to be the hamburger tray
Philip: My least favorite meal was each and every one I had in jail. My favorite meal was the one I ate when I left.

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Gordy: yes you can buy a lot of stuff that you would buy at a normal store but with certain limitations
Jeff: Inmates cuddle order commissary and the prices were much lower than other facilities that I've been in I think Sarasota County would rank as average on their cost of commissary items at the Sarasota County Jail
Philip: The facilitynitaelf offered no snacks outside of the three daily meals. Commissary was incredibly expensive. Comparative to store bought items they were at least at a 200 percent up charge for abknock off offmbrand quality product
