I'll let the lead-in sentence from the title link speak for itself:
"The Republican plan to privatize food service in the state prisons will increase the odds of dangerous and costly violence, corrections workers warn."
This is wise advice, and what's also important to note is that privatizing food services, which inevitably leads to the malnourishment of prisoners, is counter-productive in a system that is also required to provide healthcare for its wards.
Prisoners have rioted over poor food service in Kentucky in the past, which is really saying something because it takes awfully deplorable situations to incite prisoners to riot. And a little over a week ago, a hunger strike was started at a CCA prison in Arizona over the food services.
