Prisoners at Invercargill Prison will eat a $4 meal of roast chicken, potatoes, carrots, peas and apple pie this Christmas Day.

The Department of Corrections released details of Christmas in prisons across the country yesterday, saying the meal would not be lavish and the day would be much like any other.

Inmates will have sandwiches, which they normally have for lunch, in the evening on December 25.

They can buy Christmas cake, mince pies and Christmas pudding from the prison canteen.

All gifts coming into the prison will be vetted for contraband.

Pillars, the charity for prisoner's children, will be running an activity centre in the visitor facilities where inmates can have some form of Christmas with their families.
