Due to decreasing demand, pork has now been removed from all federal prison cafeterias in the United States for the new fiscal year. This decrease, according to Prison Bureau spokesman Edmond Ross, is due to the fact that prisoners are becoming more health conscious. Ross also explained that pork continues to be rated low by inmates and asked, “Why keep pushing food that people don’t want to eat?” Earlier this year, a federal court in Michigan ruled in favor of a vegan prisoner who was denied vegan meals during his sentence. The 2016 national prison menu will include items such as tofu fried rice, soy burgers, and steamed vegetables such as peas, green beans, and broccoli.
