Hero Image Redirecting Package Can I Sent A Package To A Federal Inmate?
As a result of being asked via email and other places a few times, I figured I would add this answer to the blog. The Q& This section exists to answer some of the basic questions that are relatively common when discussing federal prisons, how they work, and what the truth is about them.

In short, no.
The BOP does not allow you to send a package to someone in federal custody.
Why? Primarily because it would create more work for them. They could always hire another person to work the mailroom, but they have profit margins to maintain, and bonuses to collect.
Federal inmates CAN send you packages, though.
