USA: Aramark's Performance in Prison Foodservice Monitored in New Website

Alliance for Quality Services has launched a new website,, which takes an independent critical look at Aramark’s performance in state and correctional facilities.

New York, NY – Alliance for Quality Services has launched a new website, Eye On Aramark Prison Contracts, which monitors Aramark’s performance in correctional facilities. The site provides independent information about Aramark’s record in prison food service to jail administrators, state and county officials and other correctional professionals.

Drawing on documentary research, Eye on Aramark Prison Contracts provides reports about events leading to Aramark’s resignation in Tarrant County, Texas, including food shortages and near riots over food service; an expose into Aramark’s tenure in Florida state prisons; a report on the ongoing grand jury investigation into Aramark’s operations at a Pennsylvania prison; an Ohio State Auditor’s investigation into Aramark’s operation at a state correctional facility; and numerous other reports of unsanitary conditions and security breaches in state and county prisons throughout the country.

These reports raise a fundamental question: are Aramark’s low-cost bids truly saving money for state and prison officials or do they carry hidden costs?
