Raise Your Own, Says Guilford


Abstract:
Commissioner R. Flake Shaw's developed an innovative solution to relieve scores of hungry Guilford County prisoners. In January 1933, the county purchased a farm to be worked by inmates who will help supply food to the 425 individuals who were wards of the county. The farm proved to be an efficient, cost-effective solution to buying prisoners' food from outside sources.
