- Apr 6, '06 by GooeyRNI have never worked corrections but "food loaf" sounds just awful! What is it the punishment for?
- Apr 6, '06 by EricJRNWow. I'm not in corrections either, but with the rise of litigation nowadays, I'd be surprised if even a prison could get away with that now.
- Apr 6, '06 by kiyasmomFood loaf? Ugh! That is SERIOUS punishment! I don't work in corrections, but your catchy title sure got my attention.
- Apr 6, '06 by LoriRN911We have the same. It's called Management loaf. Its for the inmates who for whatever reason have been less than desirable. The way we don't get litigation is the "yummy" loaf contains all the necessary protiens, carbs ect that is in a regular meal. So it's not like were leaving anything nuturious out that you would not get in a breakfast, lunch or dinner rigger. It's very structured. No it does look or smell good. K-9 dogs probally would not even eat it.
- Apr 7, '06 by texascowgirlthe punishment is for the inmates in administrative segregation/solitary confinement because there aint much else you can punish them with when they are locked up in a small cell 23 hours a day. any kind of behavior-acting out, running their mouths at CO's or staff, causing disturbances of any sort, etc etc........basically, acting a fool.............

- Apr 7, '06 by sallymayroseHello All. this is my first time here,actually, this is my first time in a chat room. I work in NY DOC's. We have a medium facility and an SHU (200) at my facility. The "loaf" is used as a last ditch effort to control behaviors in the SHU. It is mainly cabbage. It is considered nutrionally balanced. Most of the inmates don't eat it. There are restrictions to placing an inmate on the loaf. Medically, no IDDM are able to be placed on it. Also, if the sentence is for longer than 5 days, they have 2 days of regular meals then back to the loaf for 5.
- Apr 7, '06 by mercyteapotNever heard of it, but as you say, there are limited options to punishing someone who's already in for life. It just sounds like a more nutritionally balanced alternative to the bread and water punishments of old.
- Apr 7, '06 by canoeheadIt sounds wonderful to me (for the inmates).
Any moms out there getting ideas about what to do when their kids complain about supper AGAIN?
- Apr 7, '06 by mercyteapotIt made me remember some of the meals that the school cafeteria used to serve.
