      Local jails grapple with rising food prices

      TRI-CITIES, Wash. -- KEPR checked in at how rising food costs are affecting local jails.

      Much like our school districts, the Benton County Jail operates under long-term contracts for food services.

      It's allowed the jail to save about $20,000 in reduced food costs.

      Meantime, Franklin County still does food service on its own.

      We're told there's been a slight increase in costs -- but the jail budgeted enough money for food where it hasn't been an issue.
