Interview with Allie and Jason

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Allie: Three.
Jason: we recieved three meals a day

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Allie: They would bring it on a big cart, and we would be called out of our cells and wait in line, and then go back to our cells and eat. I didn't like the food.
Jason: the food was on a sacled from one to ten about a six not very good but id definatly say it did the job. i was granted double portions so i got two of everything and it definatly helped fill me up but it was nasty sometime good others so yea about a six

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Allie: The breakfast wasn't so bad, but it was at 4 in the morning. It was usually oatmeal or cream of wheat and a banana. Lunch was what we called the "catfood" sandwich... it was a whole bunch of things chopped up and mixed with mayo and mustard, a piece of fruit and a cookie. Dinners were disgusting.
Jason: i liked it when they gave spreadable meal which i could intergrade into a spread which is dehydrated beans rice and noddles so big chunks were good

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Allie: The only innmates who get snacks are diabetic or pregnant. You can order food from commissary.
Jason: commissary was nice they could have lowered the prices but they gotta get they money some how rite. noodle for instance were 1.19 which is highway robbery because there actually 35 cents but whatever rite
