Baraga Correctional Facility, Baraga County, Michigan
December 27-28, 2016

About 80 prisoners at Baraga Correctional Facility in Michigan refused to go to the chow hall during meal time for at least two days in order to protest the quality and the quantity of food served to them by private contractor Trinity Services Group.

Concerns over food had been a primary demand in the uprising at Kinross Correctional Facility only three months prior to this food strike. Some of the prisoners transferred in the wake of the Kinross uprising were transferred to Baraga.
