Abstract:

A survey of food utilization in five civilian organizations considered comparable to the military, including a state university, a professional football team, a law enforcement academy, a merchant marine ship, and an off-shore oil drilling rig, has been conducted. Results indicate that the level of feeding within these organizations is generally somewhat higher than in the military. In view of the findings, the cost of the military ration as determined by the Food Cost Index, including recent and planned changes to the Index which will increase the cost of the ration to approximately that of the civilian average, is considered to be reasonable and appropriate.
