We Went to Jail – This Is What We Ate
The Fife and Drum in Concord, Massachusetts is unlike any other restaurant in the state – not because of the food served, but because of who is serving it. It is inside the walls of the Northeastern Correctional Center, a minimum and pre-release prison where inmates who have demonstrated ability and willingness to follow the rules get to live with an option to work either on site or in the community. The Northeastern Correctional Center’s culinary program provides an opportunity for inmates to engage with the outside world while honing skills that are applicable to the restaurant industry outside of the facility’s walls. The Fife and Drum has been open since the 1970s, and the money generated from guests goes back into the program so that it can continue to run.
