Visiting an Inmate at Wende Correctional Facility

The New York department of correction encourages friends and family members of inmates who demonstrate a positive influence to communicate and visit with an inmate. This can help the inmate in the rehabilitation process, and eventually with his or her reintegration back into society.

Visiting days and times vary from facility to facility.  They are influenced by the security level and population concerns. At many facilities, you may only visit on certain days of the week, for example, by last name (A-L) (M-Z) or by the inmate’s DIN. As a general rule, maximum security facilities have visiting on a daily basis.
Medium and minimum security facilities have visiting on weekends and holidays.
Work Release facilities have visiting for inmates in restriction units only.
Shock Incarceration inmates have visiting every other weekend.

You should always contact the facility for the specific visiting schedule prior to visiting.

Generally visitation begins at 7:30 am and ends at 3:00 pm, but you will not be admitted to visitation if you arrive 2:30pm or later. Some may even include evening hours. Many visiting rooms become very crowded and often visitors are required to end visitation early as there are others waiting to get in.

Contact the facility prior to your initial visit to determine the visiting policy.

Visiting Hours are as follows:
9am – 3pm seven days a week.

Food at visitation?

I found a list of food you can bring with you to visitation:
Fresh fruits and vegetables.
Bread in sealed packages (no twist or clip ties).
Bakery items in sealed package.
Canned foods.
Coffee filters
Facial tissue, aluminum foil and/or plastic wrap is allowed.
Sauces in plastic jars

All of these items to my understanding must be sealed, in original untampered with packaging.  Anyone have any more info or experience on how this works?
