JM: How many meals did you get per day? Ben: Three meals pre day, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Laura: We got 3 meals per day
JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why. Ben: I didnt like it, but at the time I just wanted
to fill my stomache so I ate everything. Laura: I'm a very picky eater. Half the time I don't even
eat the food that my mom cooks, so I'd have to
rate the food in jail as mediocre. I'm actually
surprised that I ate as much of it as I did. I
even gained some weight while I was in jail.
JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals? Ben: Least favorite was the fake meat they served.
My favorite while I was locked up was Sunday
breakfasts when they served waffles and peanut
butter. Laura: Breakfast was my favorite meal. It was the only
meal I knew I would definitely eat. I'd get up at
4am to eat then go back to sleep.
JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it? Ben: Yes, commencary or however you spell it, let you
buy various snacks, drinks and soups from a list
they gave you if your family or friends kept
money on your books. Laura: Only if you knew inmates cooking between meals.
Commissary was like ramen, honey buns and oatmeal
cream pies. It was just as expensive as they are
in the real world, but just like in the real world
it adds up.
