Jail Bakery Boosts Vocational Training, Saves Money

November 8, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The Marin County (Calif.) jail has figured out a way to enhance its prisoner vocational training program while saving $41,000 a year. After investing $128,000 in remodeling the kitchen – primarily adding two new ovens – the jail’s inmate bakers now produce their own bread – 35,000 loaves a year at a cost of 35¢ a loaf, instead of the $1.45 a loaf the facility used to spend. Taste-testing was so successful that one jail official said she hoped the program would add cinnamon rolls and Christmas cookies to its product line.
