Interview with Tom and Abe

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Tom: 3 meals
Abe: 3 meals were served per day

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Tom: I'm a chef by trade so if Spago is 10 and roadkill is zero, I'd give it a 3.5
Abe: I would rate the breakfast as excellent it always seemed hot and fresh. The lunch was usually pretty decent as well with a nice rotation on the menu from week to week. The dinner was often cold and left something to be desired after a long confined day in jail.

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Tom: Everybody loves chicken day on Sunday. Least favorite was oatmeal in the morning.
Abe: Yes my favorite was breakfast. It was usually hot eggs, and cereal or oatmeal with coffee and a cup of orange juice

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Tom: We got commissary once a week. My day was Monday.
Abe: The commissary had an extensive ordering list. The prices were about 3 times the outside rate for snacks and stationary items such as paper, envelopes and stamps. Commissary food products were often outdated or expired.
