All inmates are provided with nutritionally balanced meals using Department of Correction's menus written by a registered dietitian. All meals are prepared under direct supervision and are prepared by inmate labor. Inmates are trained in food preparation, food storage, and sanitation techniques to insure safety. Inmates serve an average of 120,000 meals a year at this facility.
The kitchen is inspected, documented, and in compliance with national and local health regulations. Food supplies, budgeting, and accounting procedures to control cost and waste are the responsibility of the Food Service Manager.
The GED/ABE (Adult Basic Education) Program in the Warren County Jail enables inmates to continue with their educational goals while incarcerated. Research has shown that improving ones educational levels helps to decrease recidivism in the jails and prisons.
Inmates discover areas in which they are successful, learn to communicate more effectively, and develop skills that will serve them when they are released. Some are also prepared to take the GED exam if they have not completed a high school education. Inmates who are not eligible for the GED, but are eligible for ongoing special education, are given instruction at their appropriate level.
