JM: How many meals did you get per day? Natalie: We had three meals per day.
JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why. Natalie: The food at this facility was better than the
Harris County facility. It was not great, but
meals did not seem to repeat themselves as
frequently as in Harris County. The food seemed to
be more flavorful, requiring less salt. I would
say on a scale of one to ten, I would rate it a
seven, under the circumstances.
JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals? Natalie: No favorite or least favorite meals. If it were not
for commissary, many inmates would go without or eat
JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it? Natalie: No snacks were offered outside of mealtime. When
trying to stretch commissary, inmates learn how to
stretch certain portions of their meals to tide
themselves over. The commissary here was slightly
more moderately priced than Harris County and was
offered twice a week. There was also more variety
of commissary items from which to choose.
