FILE -- Food delivered to a cell at Pelican Bay prison in Crescent City, Calif., Feb. 9, 2012. California offers kosher meals, but Florida stopped offering them in 2007. A federal judge responding to a U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit has issued a temporary injection forcing the state to begin serving the meals by July 2014. (Jim Wilson/The New York Times)
