Interview with Ricky

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Ricky: You would get 3 meals per day.

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Ricky: overall, the food was good for prison food. The portions were above average in size, and there was a large variety of food. Granted, the food mainly consisted of carbs, (bread, pasta, oatmeal, ect) you were always full when you finished. There weren't any spices or seasonings which made the food sort of bland.

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Ricky: Saturday mornings were pancakes and grapefruit which was my favorite... They also served chicken. Hotdogs and beans were my least favorite.

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Ricky: There were no snacks outside of meals, but there was a commissary which was reasonably priced; the had sweets such as cookies and honey buns, and the also sold noodles such as ramens along with cheese sticks and pepperoni. You could also buy a hot pot in which to cook with.
