Your right on point, your comments sound like you've spent time in the joint. Because I have and there's nothing worse than being hungry all the time. "The Whole Shabang" so true! Try honey buns with peanut butter!! Why can't inmates grow there own vegetables? It can't possibly be financially prohibited. Excellent podcast!

The military men who are deployed have to eat the same food as prisoners. On one of the MREs it actually read "for military or prison use only". it's pretty sad that our military is being fed within the same category as non law abiding criminals.

what about serving Soylent or plenny shakes once a day? they come with everything needed nutritionally, and cost per serving is very cheap. I know lots of college students who eat this. there's chocolate, vanilla and strawberry flavors.

Bruna Diniz Soylent green is fictional, and Soylent is real, do you know what it is? I'm assuming you are trying to make a joke, but I'm not finding it funny.... I'm being serious here that this could be a good cost effective solution that is nutritious.

Besides the uprising taxes, they are still human beeings that do not differ from the people outside.Just because they are in prison does not mean that we should treat them like trash, they at least deserve satisfaction of the primary needs.

sefovacha like they said in the episode, it's much cheaper to serve decent food in the first place than treat maladies caused by a poor diet, ethics aside. in my opinion, it's the right thing to do, plus it's cost effective. thanks for sharing your opinion, I hope you have a great day.
