The purpose of the kitchen operation is to provide the inmates with a variety of professionally designed menus. Currently, the Jail Facility is contracting ABL Management Inc. for all meal services.
The Food Service Director, an employee of ABL Management Inc. , is responsible for the overall nutrition and operation of the Food Service. A Certified Dietitian plans the menus and forwards them to the Food Service Director. The menus are designed to meet recommended dietary allowances and follow the Food Guide Pyramid. The regular menus exceeds 2800 calories per day.
A special needs menu is also available to address diabetic, low-fat and allergy issues. The Jail Facility kitchen provides in excess of 3100 meals each and every day and is a place where inmate workers can learn food service skills, which could assist them in seeking employment upon their return to the community.
