Interview with Jen, Karen and Will

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Jen: 3 if you want to call it that
Karen: We got three meals per day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. No snacks unless you purchased them through commissary.
Will: 3

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Jen: I would not feed that food to my dog, I lost 11 pounds the first week, due to the fact that the food was so gross
Karen: The food was terrible. It was low grade meat and a lot of beans. It was bland without salt or flavor. Quantity was low also. I was always hungry. No fresh fruit. If you got lucky to have salad it was limp and tiny amount of dressing. The drink was watered down koolaid.
Will: My food was terrible, because I had to eat the same disgusting sandwich for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I had the regular meals a few times and comparatively speaking it was pretty good.

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Jen: NO
Karen: No favorite meals, they were all horrible. The least of the least favorite was when they served beets with the meal.
Will: Favorite meal was anything but that sandwich I was getting morning, noon and night.

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Jen: only if you bought them from commisary yourself
Karen: No there was no outside snacks offered. If you wanted something you had to rely on someone outside the jail to put money on your books so that you could purchase something from commissary. It was expensive to buy things.
Will: The commissary was really good. They actually had a touch screen on the wall that you could place your orders. Selection was great, but I would imagine anything would look better then that sandwich. I was able to order commissary once and I never ate so much if my life. I bet I ate over $40 worth of candy, chips, cookies and instant koolaid
