According to The Marshall Project, a nonprofit publication that covers the criminal-justice system in the US, the budget per meal in jails and prisons in the United States is as little as $0.56. An example of a meal from a state prison might be something like 2 to 3 ounces of meat or meat byproduct, half a cup of vegetables, three-quarters of a cup of a starch, and three-quarters of a cup of salad with dressing.

That doesn’t sound too bad but then on such a low budget the prison kitchen is never going to be serving up a Masterchef meal.

However, there was a time when some items on the prison menu looked more like what you would see on a 5-star restaurant menu. And that’s what we’ll be looking at today, in this episode of The Infographics Show: Why were lobsters once gruel and prison food?
