'Baked slop': Delaware sticks to prison loaf; others end use

SMYRNA, Del. – While other states are gradually moving away from special diets for unruly prisoners, Delaware officials are sticking with their use of what is commonly known as "the loaf."

That's the name given to a mashup of vegetables, bread, rice and other ingredients typically given to inmates for misbehavior involving food or bodily waste.

Pennsylvania replaced the loaf with bagged meals in October, and Maryland's prison chief rescinded its use last month.

But Delaware is sticking with the loaf, serving it to 30 inmates in 2015, and 17 last year.

I dont understand the issue either. What do they expect, surf and turf??? I suggest they get some bread and bologna. I believe in choice so mustard or mayo. They dont need any silverware. A bottle of water for a drink. boom!!!! problem solved.

It's sustenance food, not a gourmet selection. If you don't like it, don't be acting up and you can eat what everybody else does at the big boy tables.
