This spring, North Idaho Correctional Institution began the much-anticipated remodeling of their outdated kitchen.  While the task of feeding over 400 offenders each day during the course of this project presented significant logistical challenges at first, staff at NICI met this challenge and began providing meals out of a cook trailer provided by St. Anthony Work Camp.  With the fire season approaching, however, St. Anthony needed their trailer back to feed inmate fire crews, and NICI then turned to the Idaho National Guard for assistance.  On July 13th, the Idaho National Guard set up two mobile kitchens to use until the remodel project is completed, which at this time is anticipated to be mid-August. Shown above are the National Guard kitchens.
