Kitchen and Laundry services are contracted through Aramark Correctional Services. Qualified inmates can become 'Inmate Workers' and earn time off their jail sentences by performing tasks supervised by Aramark employees.
Inmates lodged in the Josephine County Adult Jail receive a meal plan that provides 2,500 calories per day (averaged in a week) and approved by a dietitian. The menus meet the guidelines of the American Correctional Association.
An average day's menu at the Jail includes:
- Breakfast - Fresh fruit, dry cereal, an egg, coffee cake with margarine, and 1% milk
- Lunch - Soup, sandwich, cookie, and iced tea
- Dinner - Meatloaf pattie, cottage fries, salad with dressing, biscuit, iced cake, and a fruit drink
The Jail kitchen is inspected by the Josephine County Health Inspector on a regular basis.
