I am at community corrections and currently on a special medical diet. Community Alternatives Of El Paso County has subcontracted Trinity Food Services to feed the "residents" at this facility.  The food is low quality and we cannot bring food into the facility. I personally have lost thirty plus pounds in 6 weeks due to being feed under these conditions. I am typically provided one hot meal and two sack lunches for my three meals. We are not in control of our assets and we only receive a monthly ledger of our finances. We pay the standard state fee for community corrections housing yet cannot be fed adequately to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In prison they can order food without a point system in place. We must do duties to earn points such as clean the bathroom (10points), strip and wax the floors (50-100 points), and other various duties to earn these points to spend 200 points to order outside food. How is it that inmates in prison can order food and commissary but we as residents paying rent cannot. I just seek balance within a broken system.
