Interview with Kelly, Katrina, Billy and Cory

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Kelly: We had three meals a day, beginning at 5:30 am, lunch and then dinner. I felt the meals were adequate and some were very tasty.
Katrina: Three meals a day really two breakfast you only get oatmeal and a small piece of cornbread
Billy: We would have 2 meals a day
Cory: 3 meals per day. 2 hot and 1 cold

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Kelly: The meals were fine. At times when everyone was served if they had meals left over they would bring them for us to eat.
Bill: POOR.
Katrina: Horrible I would not feed that food to a dog it sucks its always cold it's never hot or at least even warm it's always beans beans beans yuck half of the time when they mix everything together you don't even know what it is it is horrible just nasty
Billy: I would rate the food as bad.When the food comes to you its cold, bread be hard as a rock. No seasoning, you have to buy salt and pepper.You really dont get alot of food on your tray. Its not even enough for a baby to eat. Sometimes the food dont be cooked all the way
Cory: the food was horrible, but it is a jail, not a restaurant. we never had any solid meats. we always had food that could be stretched like spaghetti,casseroles, etc. The bread was not fresh on the cold sandwiches we were given and you was never given any water. Just Kool-Aid.

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Kelly: I especially liked the spaghetti.
Katrina: The only meal that is worth eating is the chicken patty and rice and chocolate cake everything else sends you to the toilet
Billy: The favorite food i really liked that they gave enough of is grits. I could get full off eat it. The least favorite food was the sandwiches. The meat taste like rubber. No condiment for the sandwich and the bread was hard
Cory: all of the meals were disgusting. But if I had to say a favorite, I would say the cold cut sandwiches.

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Kelly: There were no snacks (except from the commissary).
Bill: NO
Katrina: The only snacks they give out is to pregnant people and diabetics if you want snacks which you are going to need to survive in there but the commissary is expensive it's 2.00 for a candy bar
Billy: There were other snacks like gram crackers and fruits.The commissary was ok, it was very high in price. The chips were 50 cents on the street but in jail they are a 1.50 cents for the little bag.
Cory: the commissary was outrageously priced items. A bag of chips you would by on the street for 25 cents was like 60 cents. The commissary had a good selection, but the prices were too expensive
