Interview with Micah and Kenneth

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Micah: 3. breakfast at 430 AM, lunch around noon, and supper about 6. One morning I was transported to the South Jail to go to court for my DWI, and WAS NOT fed breakfast. They were passing out trays as I left my CB that morning and when we got across the street they had already eaten. The gaurds at the South Jail did NOT care that me and a few other inmates had not been fed.
Kenneth: Three meals per day in nothing more

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Micah: After about 2 weeks in jail you begin to get used to it. But for the first 2 weeks. It's horrible.
Kenneth: The food was bad because it had no flavor to it at all it's like diabetic food or something and sometimes it may be cold or just plane nasty but by being in jail you have no choice but to eat it and deal with it or you will go hungry

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Micah: Least favorite- goulash, Favorite- cereal, eggs and milk. We only got milk with breakfast every other day. The other days we got unsweet tea.
Kenneth: If i had to pick it would be hamburger day but it still isn't like burger king or Wendy's but it's the closes you will get to it

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Micah: Only if you bought them yourself with commisary.
Kenneth: There was commissary and it is real expensive and i don't know why it would be so expensive for people that are in jail with no job i think that is really unfair and they should change that.
