Food is expensive - I usually take $40-60 with me per visit and spend most of it.

Forms of ID are on the IDOC website.

As to amt they can have on acct, I believe its $1000

The bending machines are not really cheap. At least at Menard you are only allowed a max of 50.00 on a food card an when I visit my LO I fill it up. He usually gets a sandwich or 2 a bag of chips a soda an maybe 2 candybars an that costs about 30.00. They sell sandwiches for 5.00
