milk (1 pint) cold cereal, 2 hard boiled eggs and a roll or bread-
sometimes oatmeal. Lunch at 9:30 am- lunchmeat sandwich chips
or cookie, fruit. Dinner at 5 pm, usually varied but it was always
warm- like spaghetti or meatballs with noodles- always came with
a vegetable bread and powdered juice. George: 2OUT OF10 Diana: Gross I can't even rate it there ain't nothing good about jail

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it? Ryan: YES, YOU COULD BUY STORE Alex: Yes they had a good size commissary list. George: IF YOU HAD MONEY ON YOUR ACCONT Diana: Yes commissary was very expensive. Like twice street price
plus generic product not good quality. But it'll keep you from
being hungry so it'll do plus jail food sucks so you'll need extra
food to get threw Maria: Oh, yea! There were all sorts of goodies you
order from commissary: candy bars, soda pops, etc.
But it was spendy!
Really spendy. In fact, commissary became a sort
bartering tool that folks would use.
