Inmates now have the option of ordering an additional daily meal that includes fast food items like pizza, cheeseburgers, chicken nuggets and calzones.

The FreshFavorites meal program has not only raised needed money for jail operations but has also created an incentive for inmates to behave.

Fights and other discipline problems have decreased significantly since inmates who act up know they won't get their specialty snacks, said Sheriff Drew Alexander.

Family members can pay for the additional meals via the program's website.
