ESU is a safe alternative for inmates and mental health patients, providing a humane alternative to eating with fingers.
— CSP-SAC prison authorities in Folsom, California

“Ohio Bureau of Behavioral Health Service (BOBHS) has made it part of Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections (ODRC) policy to utilize the paperboard utensils in all Ohio correctional facilities. “I used the ESU when I worked at Ross Correctional Institute and I am happy to see it being adapted as part of the Ohio policy for all ODRC facilities.”

— Sharon Salyers, Southern Ohio Correctional

“These are great for prisoners who are at risk of self harm or suicide as it means staff can issue meals on a paper plate with a scoop (as we call them) and don’t have to be supervised with metal or plastic cutlery.
They’re also great for prisoners with mental health issues who could use normal cutlery as a weapon.”

—Christchurch Mens’ Prison,
Department of Corrections, New Zealand


“We love ESUs, they reduced the risk for self-harm that stems from plastic utensil
