Prisons try to cut costs with new menu, ombudsman says

23 Mar, 2017

A program aimed at cutting the cost of feeding federal prisoners has achieved only “dubious” savings while sparking racial tensions and contributing to a deadly riot, the prison ombudsman believes.

Robertson writes that documents obtained through access-to-information laws reveal problems with the “cook-chill” program, which since November 2014 has had large prisons prepare food and freeze it before shipping to smaller institutions, similar to airline food.
