More Prisons Changing Inmate Meal Schedules

The Illinois Department of Corrections is expanding a program that changes the meal schedule for prison inmates. Under the program, inmates will get two larger meals a day, instead of three normal-sized meals.

A department spokesman said the larger meals are more convenient for inmates, and easier on staff members who prepare, serve, and clean up after each service. But a watchdog group claims inmates at a correctional center in Canton have complained about portion sizes.
