That's not kosher 

"There should be a way to ascertain who really does require a kosher meal for their religious belief and who is just gaming the system."

— Rabbi Menachem M. Katz, director of prison and military outreach for the Aleph Institute, quoted in a New York Times story about increased demand for kosher meals in Florida prisons. The state had discontinued offering kosher meals in 2007 citing high costs. Courts have protected prisoners' religious freedom and ruled that prisons must offer kosher meals, but the meals are appealing to non-Jewish inmates as well.
