State Wants Better Food for Inmates

One Kentucky State Representative has introduced a bill to improve the quality and quantity of the food at all of the state’s prison, but critics say it’s costly and unnecessary. This was the scene last August when inmates rioted at Northpoint Prison near Danville. State Rep. Brent Yonts believes one of the main causes for this uprising was food.

Right now, a private company, Aramark, provides the inmates meals, so he is proposing a bill that would put the state back in control.
