Produce horizon: Half a jail plate

Does anyone see an opportunity here? It’s not as glamorous as watching a first-grader experience kiwifruit for the first time, but a “Salad Bars Behind Bars” campaign for jails and prisons could serve a new set of captive consumers.

Institutional foodservice could find a niche market here.

I’m surprised the Food Network doesn’t have a prison-based show: “Hoosegow Haute Cuisine,” “Slammer Eats” or “Iron Bar Chef Joliet.”

The answer is a resounding YES, those men and women most certainly are less valuable. Until every single child and good person has his or her fill of fresh fruit and veggies, the prisoners deserve to do without. They are already too well fed. However, if we can find a way to load the veggies with saltpetre and sterilization drugs, then I say we give them all they can stomach!
