Concord inmates learn restaurant skills while dishing up tasty lunches
It may be an unlikely spot for a gourmet restaurant, but lunch at the minimum security Northeast Correctional Center in Concord is cheap, plentiful and cooked with precision. Four days a week for $3.21, diners enter one of the drab gray buildings at the Concord rotary, drop off their licenses at security, and line up for a seat at one of nine tables in the cafe known as the Fife and Drum. Inmates serve as waiters, cooks and busboys.
