Abstract : Opinions were elicited from 619 enlisted personnel at Fort Lee to determine various elements related to food service, including the background characteristics of the samples, their meal patterns, which factors influence attendance and which factors are viewed as problem areas, their evaluations of the quality, variety, and quantity of the food as well as several other non-food features of Army food service. The results indicated among other things that not just those who dislike military service dislike Army food service, the traditional assumption of 21 meals a week is invalid for these groups, speed of service is the most serious problem. Additional recommendations are presented in the text.
