Interview with Eric

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Eric: There were 3 meals per day.

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Eric: The food at the Grand Traverse County Jail should not be served to humans. The food is all processed carbohydrates and nothing is cooked, it is all steamed. The "meat" of the meals is all soy. There was no reason to chew any meal. But at the same time you absolutely HAD to eat every bit because the portion sizes are so small that, even when you do eat everything, you starve.

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Eric: All of the meals were bad. There were no favorite meals. My least favorite meals were all breakfast meals. They were the smallest meal of the day

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Eric: There were no snacks offered outside of the 3 regular meals. You had to order commissary. The commissary came 2 times a week unless there was a holiday and in that case once or less. The items on the commissary were pretty high priced, but not the highest of some other jails I have been to. Also, there was something called "Fresh Favorites" 2 days a week that you could order another meal along with your meal. There was a rotating menu for that, and the cost was pretty reasonable.
