Interview with Sarah, Sandra and Lyle

JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Sarah: 3
Sandra: 3 meals served per day
Lyle: Three: breakfast, lunch and dinner

JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Sarah: worse then worse
Sandra: I thought it was probably nutricious and acceptable. I didn't dig on the meat very much, it seemed kinda low rate. But all in all I cant complain about the munu. It came in some variety and there were decent deserts from time to time. But I have had worse
Lyle: Terrible food. Bland, tasteless, and often the same menu all the time. A lot of potatoes, pasta, and bread and butter at every meal. Rice and vegetables, sometimes fruit, but often vitamin supplement "kool-aid" packets were given to mix with water, in replacement for actual sustenance or stomach filling meals

JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Sarah: canteen
Sandra: Anything resembling hamburger was a treat. I liked the good deserts. I also liked the little drink mixes which I prefer to the food
Lyle: The cakes or desserts were decent, but fattening. I often traded my snacks for nutritional thing like fruit or veggies.

JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Sarah: canteen you could buy
Sandra: Commissary was available. It was also VERY expensive. I couldn't afford much. It is a lot cheaper in state prison than it is in county. The providers of commissary in county are ripping off the destitute
Lyle: There were commissary items available, for example Ramen noodles, they were a DOLLAR and nineteen cents, where in the real store, they are ONLY nineteen cents. The mark up in Waukesha County jail was huge!
