Food and Commissary
JM: How many meals did you get per day?
Zach: Three regular meals.
Andy: 3 meals a day, breakfast at 4am, lunch at 10am then dinner at 4pm. If you're lucky enough to be in the 3West 100 or 200 pod then most of the time you're able to get double trays during breakfast and dinner, while lunch you'll get plenty of sandwiches and soups.
JM: How would you rate the food? Please give details of why.
Zach: On a scale of 1-10, ten being bad, I'd say most people would consider it an 11. But then I like jail food, so I'm different.
Andy: It's not as bad as people think. But you're in jail so don't expect much.
JM: Did you have any favorite/least favorite meals?
Zach: I like the s*** on a shingle, eggs, even green powdered eggs. I like most all meals, but the food is pretty bad.
Trevor: gravy and rice for breakfast was good
Andy: For breakfast it would be biscuit and gravy, rice and gravy and the french toast. For lunch I only liked peanut butter and jelly sandwich Wednesday. For dinner spaghetti days.
JM: Were there any other snacks offered outside of meals? What was commissary like and how expensive was it?
Zach: Yes, you can spend $120 per week on candy!! You can buy all kinds of things if you have the money.
Andy: On 3West 100/200 pods we got a very big commissary list, you can get candies like snickers, kit kat to potatoe chip and cookies. I know our list is a lot longer than inmates housed on different floors.
