Prison Food & the Alabama Inmate Food Fund Scandal

Season 2

Are inmate food conditions criminal? You be the judge.


In this episode, we discuss the history of prison food - from lobster to Nutraloaf. We then cover the disturbing story of the Alabamian law that allowed sheriffs to keep inmate food funds…as personal income. Sheriff Todd Entrekin (and many others) took advantage of this system for decades, making inmate wellbeing & rehabilitation a point of contention.
