Welcome to Pamunkey’s A Taste of Home Program


Pamunkey Regional Jail is pleased to offer you the opportunity to provide a fresh hot meal to a loved one during their stay. Being in jail is never easy for the offender in jail or the family; however, a hot meal that is ‘a taste of home’ is a simple way to remind your loved one that you care and are thinking of them.

Pamunkey’s A Taste of Home program contains appetizers, combo meals, desserts, and sodas that are prepared fresh and in-house by our Food Services staff and hand delivered to each offender once a week. These items are not on our regular offender menu and have been hand selected for our offender population.

We are excited to offer this program to you and look forward to providing your loved ones a meal to remind them of ‘a taste of home’.


How It Works

Pamunkey’s A Taste of Home program provides hot, freshly prepared meals that are hand delivered to each offender once a week. These meals do not replace the offender’s regular meals and nutrition; but are an additional tasty treat.

The menu items are similar to meals that are seen in restaurants or even made at home. Selections may vary from time to time based on season or popularity, but include selections such as: deluxe cheeseburger, cheesesteak, boneless hot wings, or pizzas. We also have a selection of appetizers like cheese fries and mozzarella sticks. We even take it one step further and offer a dessert of golden funnel fries as well as a selection of ice-cold beverages including sodas, bottled water, and juice.

Orders can be placed any time on this website (Shop) which are received by our Food Services staff who then freshly prepares and hand delivers the meals to the offenders once a week. Order cut off times are Tuesday at midnight with delivery on Wednesday evening. Delivery dates may vary depending on holidays and other situations affecting facility staffing.
