Food is a fundamental part of the human experience. What and how we eat has a profound effect on our physical health, mental and emotional well-being, and sense of dignity. We believe that people who are incarcerated – like all people – deserve to eat in a way that promotes long-term wellness, strengthens connection to others, and recognizes their humanity.
Impact Justice’s Food in Prison Project is documenting the short- and long-term effects of eating in confinement, analyzing the structures that have created our current system, and identifying opportunities for change. In order to do this, we need your assistance.
Please help us collect data and stories about the impact of the prison food experience through our Food in Prison survey. We’re seeking feedback from people who have been incarcerated and experienced eating in confinement firsthand.
You can also download a copy of the survey. Please share the survey widely – we hope to hear from as many formerly incarcerated people as possible! The Food in Prison Project survey closes on June 21, 2019.
