Default Fiance in Solano, does anyone do anything for the inmates at Christmas?

Hello, my name is Michele. I'm new here. My fiance is in Solano. I was wondering if Solano does anything for them for the Holidays as well?

I do think they will try. Often the meals are a bit better with some attempt at holiday fare.
I know my hub told me once while he was in reception at SQ they got cold watermelon on the fourth of july
Thanksgiving they got some turkey. (different facilty)

I dont remember what he said about Christmas tho.

In most CDC facilities the only difference will be dinner. It's usually a little more "home-cooked" and sometimes they get bigger portions. But that's subject to the person running the kitchen that year. It's not a requirement.

Some facilities have groups that try to host things for the holidays. Those tend to be on the lower level yards. I know when mine was in a 4, Christmas was just another day. They often spent it on lockdown because of staff shortage. He's on a three now and the different self-help groups often try to reach out to the other inmates to join them for services or a "spread meal", watch a movie in the day room.
To be honest, it's not usually the staff that put out the extra. I don't say that in a pessimistic way, it's not in their best interest or permitted to go too far above and beyond. So one of the things they can do is allow sanctioned activities by the inmate groups. I hope some cheer is brought to your loved one's yard this year!
