Dylan: At the begining the food was alright the trays were full different food every day. breakfast would be like flap jacks, waffles, juice toast. It was decent. I mean your in jail cant really expect steak and mashpotatoes. Then I noticed towards the end of my time it was getting worse. Trays were bad. We were getting grits and 1 toast that was it for breakfast next day we would get oatmeal and toast and they would do that every day oatmeal grits, oatmeal grits. Rumor was going around the lunch lady had to make her budget and she was running out of funds. So explained the sucky tray.
