The 100 or so inmates jailed on both ends of the valley will enjoy holiday meals.
Garfield Sheriff Lou Vallario said prisoners in his jail will be served a burrito for breakfast on Sunday; they’ll also have biscuits, sausage with gravy, oatmeal and Danish pastries.
Lunch is the big meal of the day: Pork loin, stuffing, mashed potatoes, or beans, cranberry sauce and apple pie a la mode. Dinner will probably consist of leftovers, or a sandwich.
Pitkin County is serving their inmates honey-glazed ham for lunch, and baked lasagna for dinner. The food provider for inmates in the Pitkin County Jail is Aspen Valley Hospital.
Garfield’s food is prepared by an in-house staff of three. Several inmates also help in the kitchen.
