Interview with Todd, Katie and Burl

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Todd: There were three meals per day, breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Katie: You get 3 meals as day.
Burl: We got three meals a day

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Todd: The food was: Not bad.
Katie: Terrible. No taste, tastes reprocessed, very bland. Also, not enough food in the portions in the food. The food was always cold with no seasoning. Lunch was always the bologna sandwhich and it seemed like the dinner was the only meal that was switched up to something different every evening.
Burl: The food was horriable it tast like pure slob. It has no tast. And you do not get full once done eating you are still going to bevery hungry unless you have comminsary or midnight snaks hidden some where you get your last meal at five thirty in the afternoon

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Todd: There was an egg salad day where I experienced stomach pains twice and ended up buying my own peanut butter from the commisary to bypass this problem.
Katie: Least favorites was the want to be chinese supper, bologna sandwhich and the pork and noodles. I think that the bologna sandwhich meal would have been fine if it wouldn't have been served every single lunch.
Burl: No there were no favorite meals except the fruit was really good that was my favorite part of all meals

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Todd: Only what you ordered and bought yourself from the commisary once a week.
Katie: Yes peanut butter and jelly crackers The commissary covered all health care necessities, however, I felt that pricing for individual items and the size of the items was over priced. It seemed like a small bar of soap was like $4.50 and it was the size of a hotel bar of soap very small.
Burl: Commissary was not that expensive you get it once a week and you have to be classsfied to order it and that could take up tp 72 hours so you have to make sure you are classisfied
