SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The Utah Department of Corrections wants to spend nearly $22 million on a new kitchen facility that would serve meals to inmates in Draper, at the prison in Gunnison and halfway houses.
Corrections department spokeswoman Angie Welling says all the food would be prepared on site, flash frozen and reheated at other locations.
Welling says the state could save up to $2 million a year by building one new kitchen, freezing the food and sending it to other locations -- instead of building new kitchens at each facility.
