Abstract:

A survey of food utilization quantity and expenditure cost throughout the military has been conducted. Detailed data are presented for each military service and for DoD as a whole, and analyses are performed to provide understanding of food usage within major and minor food groups. Results indicate that differences among services do exist, although all services do provide nutritionally adequate, quality diets. Large disparities are noted between actual food utilization and that specified by the current Food Cost Index FCI.
