Interview with Charlie, Don and Pierce

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Charlie: 3.
Don: 3
Pierce: 3 meals a day. Breakfast was served at like 5 or 6. Lunch was always a warm meal like a dinner and dinner was always cold like lunch.

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Charlie: Reasonable, for institutional food. The jailers and other staff regularly eat the same meals that the inmates get while on duty. It will keep you alive but it will also make you fat. The trustees prepare all meals, supervised by civilian personnel.
Don: 1
Pierce: I would rate it a 2 out of 5 now that I am free but it was a 4 out of 5 while I was locked up. When you are hungry and depend on each meal to fill you up the best as possible. You learn to like the food that they feed you because even though you eat three times a day. You still are hungry and those hunger pains are no joke.

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Charlie: The civilian kitchen supervisor likes to sometimes serve breakfast items at supper. Cold meals such as sandwiches are never popular, while pancakes usually are.
Don: no
Pierce: I loved sausage on shingle (SOS) and there was some kind of shepards type of pie I liked as well.

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Charlie: Yes. Inmates can purchase snack items on commissary if they have money on their books.
Don: no
Pierce: Commissary offered snickers and other chocalates.
