The Illinois Department of Corrections expects the change will save the state $2.5 million next year.
Illinois inmates are about to lose their weekend and holiday breakfasts.
The switch is expected to save the state $2.5 million in the coming fiscal year, and prisoners might not miss their breakfasts.
Many inmates already skip breakfast, Tony Godinez, the department's director, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "Nobody wants to get up at 5 a.m. to eat," the paper quoted him as saying.
