Florida inmates can't cope with daily cold kosher meal items

Daily peanut butter, sardine and cabbage items are designed to discourage inmates from signing up for kosher meals, critics say.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla.— Peanut butter, sardines and cabbage may be healthy options for some scrupulous dieters.

But Florida prison inmates whose kosher meals are comprised primarily of those three staples served cold seven days a week say the chow isn't just nutritionally inadequate, it's plain gross.

They contend that the peanut butter, sardines and cabbage served up daily by the Florida Department of Corrections are designed to discourage inmates from signing up for the kosher meals or to punish inmates if they do.
