A number of cases have arisen regarding a particular prepared food stuff widely served to prisoners in solitary confinement. Eg,

Recipe courtesy of the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections:

Recipe makes 21 servings.

10 cups reduced fat milk, 2%
26 cups white rice, cooked
5 cups potatoes, grated raw, flesh and skin
5 carrots, grated
5 cabbage, shredded
15 cups oatmeal, dry
15 cups garbanzo beans, with liquid, mashed
1 cups margarine

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients thoroughly in mixing bowl. Place paper liners in loaf pans, scale 29-30 oz. of batter into lined loaf pan. Bake for one hour and 15 minutes. Place on wire rack and cool thoroughly.
Similar-in-style recipes, 1 meat, 1 vegetarian, are printed in this court document after inmates sued the director of the dept. of corrections claiming, among other things, cruel and unusual punishment.

In 2015 NY Prison menus were challenged as well;New York Prisons Take an Unsavory Punishment Off the Table has other references and a recipe.
