THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the BeckettFund and SunSentinal on May 5, 2015.

The United States Distric Court of the Southern District of Florida has ruled that the law requires Florida prisons to serve kosher meals to inmates who request them for religious reasons.
"The state had argued that it had begun serving kosher meals to Jewish inmates who requested them and that the judge's ruling was unnecessary. But Seitz pointed out the policy could easily be changed to deny kosher meals without an order to enforce it."
"Court documents show more than 9,500 Florida prisoners have been approved for the kosher meals. The program's estimated cost is $12.3 million annually."
