Sheriff Danny Hickman is proud to report that Jail Administrator Jason Day and State 309 Inmates traveled to Wynne, Arkansas, over the weekend to pick sweet potatoes. This is the second year that we have made this trip and the food cost savings have proven to be well worth the time and effort.
The sweet potatoes are picked up by the inmates and hauled back here to the jail to be used for inmate meals. The potatoes are free of charge; we just pay the cost of the trip.
Jail Administrator Day brought back between 4000 and 4500 lbs of the vegetables. Sheriff Hickman and Day are both happy to be able to save even more money on the cost of food for the Jail.
