Private Contractor For Michigan Prisons Repeatedly Failed To Give Prisoners Enough Food
The DOC says Aramark has violated terms of the prison food contract hundreds of times since it fully took charge of feeding Michigan’s incarcerated in December. The violations include providing insufficient amounts of food, swapping menu items without the required authorization from DOC officials, and staffing issues that the department says endanger prisoners and prison employees alike. Kitchen items like knives and whisks have gone missing, according to the DOC letter warning Aramark to clean up its act, and employees have attempted to smuggle contraband into the prison.
This isn’t a twice-told tale; it’s a recital of Aramark facts told too often to keep track of.
