Prison Food Weekend

Saturday, Jun 8, 2013 10:00a to 5:00p
Eastern State Penitentiary Philadelphia, PA

What did prisoners eat nearly 200 years ago? What do prisoners eat today?
Visitors to Eastern State Penitentiary will sample meals served to prisoners from three periods in the prison’s history, including “Indian Mush” from the 1830s and Neutraloaf, a “food product” that is still issued as punishment in many prison systems today.
Also on view will be sample menus, archival photographs, prison reports, and firsthand accounts of the prison fare throughout Eastern State Penitentiary’s 142-years.
