Behind bars in Clark County, Wash., jelly has vanished from peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.He's a good man, that Sheriff Clarke.
Bread is becoming luxury of sorts for inmates in Wisconsin.
And those locked in the Milwaukee County jail could soon see dessert disappear.
"Why should they get dessert?" said Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. "I don't even get dessert every day at home. . . . They have to absorb this, too."
Clarke said he'll also look at swapping hot meals for cold and making other cuts when the department's contract with food service giant Aramark expires in the fall.
"As long as the taxpayers have to struggle with rising food costs and eat more Hamburger Helper, as long as they have to adjust their living and eating habits, why should they have to pay increased costs for people who have disregarded society's rules?"
