Food Services

Food Services are provided by Royal Mnandi who has demonstrated their capacity and efficiency to provide more than 9 500 meals per day to offenders and staff.  The meals supplied to staff are of the same quality as those provided to offenders.

Up to one hundred and thirty offenders work in the kitchen on four different shifts. They receive formal training on food and related services. Once qualified, they are rotated to provide an opportunity for others to be trained. All offenders working in the kitchen are medically screened before being appointed in their positions.

A dietician reviews the dietary requirement at least annually, and the Kitchen Manager reviews the menu at least quarterly, to ensure that the diet accepted by the dietician is conformed to.

Therapeutic diets are prescribed by the medical doctor and religious diets by the chaplain.
