Inmates Ordering Out For Pizza, Burgers

According to, “How’s this for jail house food. A county jail in San Antonio is letting people on the outside special order meals like cheeseburgers, nachos and pizza for some inmates, and it’s delivered directly to them.”

“‘It’s a privilege that we allow the inmates provided they behave and they follow all the rules,’ said Sheriff Armado Ortiz. A burger and fries will go for around nine bucks. The sheriff’s office will get about a third of the money the company running the service makes. The jail expects to take in nearly $15,000 a year from the program.”
