Our Mission

The correctional specialist food service team of the Idaho Department of Correction is dedicated to providing nutritious and appealing meals to our residents. We adhere to the highest standards of food safety and institutional security. We focus our operations on transparency, efficiency, and consistency, while providing opportunities for change for our residents through the development of life skills.


In addition to the standard menu, residents can choose from various selective diets, including vegetarian menus and a "healthy choice" option, to meet individual dietary needs. Dietary requirements not able to be met with one of the selective diet options can be addressed through the medical provider. All menus are reviewed regularly by a registered dietitian to ensure that nutritional requirements are met.
